About the Book
Softwalks activates sidewalk sheds by providing a kit of parts to create more functional public places. The kit is designed with placemaking in mind, activating our desires to sit, chat, and appreciate environments of interest. In doing so, Softwalks empowers individuals, business owners, and communities to choose what is most appropriate or useful for a shed in their neighborhood, transforming an eyesore into a community asset.
