Active mobility infrastructure is an essential element of walkable and healthy neighbourhoods. This talk will explore the experiential dimensions of evolving active mobility infrastructure, e.g., pedestrian, bike, and personal mobility device paths and networks. Building on pilot studies including systematic observation and walk-along interviews with residents, the talk will foreground micro-spatial contestations of active mobility infrastructure in Tampines, Singapore. Three key areas of people-environment interactions (rhythms of use and speed, perceived functionalities, and negotiations of safety) that must be considered while rejuvenating active mobility infrastructure in high-density urban environments will also be discussed.
