Choice Architecture & Urbanism: How we live in our cities / by Matthew Poot

Upcoming post on how the ideas of choice architecture can be applied to the design of infrastructure in order to reshape the types of choices which are available to people living in cities.  

Should we take the car to work, or take public transit?

Should I turn down the air conditioning to save energy?


If we seek to reduce pollution, improve efficiency, and have cities which connect with nature, then we need to remove certain choices from the table in order to eliminate the worst, but most immediately comfortable and satisfying options.
