Shared space – I am a huge fan

Shared space design for urban streets embodies all that I aspire to in engineering: it is innovative, holistic, counterintuitive and co-opts nature (in this case human psycology) to self design a solution.

It was pioneered by the late Hans Mondermann, a Dutch traffic engineer.

The best summary I have come across is here from a road safety website.
