Walk Raleigh is our initial step in linking the purchase of products to the funding and promotion of real life, small-scale civic and social interventions. Walk Raleigh is a very basic, guerrilla (self-installed) wayfinding system of 27 signs placed at 3 different intersections in downtown Raleigh. These signs are intended to put walkability on the forefront of conversation about the future of downtown Raleigh.
The project has already garnered a tremendous amount of press locally, nationally and internationally, spurred by a feature in The Atlantic Cities. The BBC even came to town to feature the project - earning top viewership in the US the day it aired. Recently, Walk Raleigh was one of 124 projects selected to represent the United States as part of “Spontaneous Interventions: Design Actions for the Common Good” at the 13th Annual Venice Architecture Biennale. Spontaneous Interventions highlighted compelling, actionable strategies geared towards making cities more sustainable and accessible.
