Architecture & Urban Planning
Dr. Steven Fleming has been called the Jan Gehl of bicycle urbanism. Since the publication of his internationally acclaimed book Cycle Space: Architecture and Urban Design in the Age of the Bicycle (with a sequel due shortly) he has been working with governments, universities, developers and peak bodies in the architectural and property sectors, taking bicycle planning far beyond its traditional limits. Drawing on real life experience designing high density housing estates in Asia, and an academic career with over forty articles and books as well as appointments at 5 Universities including Harvard and Columbia, he has been able to develop a radical new model of environmental design that starts with the bike and finishes with healthier and wealthier buildings and cities. His role at Cyclespace is not to present Dutch cycling as an ideal to be copied, but to work with clients on politically achievable plans.
