Better Traffic Filters


A set of speculative proposals for alternative design of the traffic filters currently on trial across the UK, which let people through whilst limiting motor through-traffic. The controversial filters, usually in the form of a wooden planter, look visually like they are "blocking" the road despite in fact opening it up for safer and freer use by those on foot and bike. These proposals aim to highlight this by re-imagining the filters as sculptural gateways which welcome people in.
