Eyes on the Street Project


Look around.

TCN is pleased to be partnering with Chuck Wolfe, Founder and Principal Advisor of Seeing Better Cities Group, on this exciting project. We are using the LENS method outlined in his book, Seeing the Better City,  as the core of a readily accessible, systematic approach to public space observation.

The goal is to provide urban planners and decision makers with expanded public input, enhancing their ability to make informed decisions and prioritize projects from the “community's-eye view.”

In Phase 1 of the ES Project, TCN and Seeing Better Cities Group will release an infographic packed with guidance for public space observation.

In Phase 2, we will build an app explicitly designed to guide users through a LENS Method-based process for public space observation in a fun and interactive way. The app will transmit observations directly to your local urban planners and decision-makers.
