The book 'PASSAGES. Transitional Spaces for the 21st-Century City' is the culmination of an international program and exhibition.

Tunnels, footbridges, escalators, urban cable cars, pathways – passages are essential links, with the potential to generate distinctive urban environments. They require little investment and should be an integral part of all big urban projects, helping to repair the fractures produced by fast transit infrastructures and the urban zoning practices of the recent past. Designing and building passages is a way to act quickly and to lay the foundations for larger scale transformations: international analyses and examples.

City on the Move Institute,  seeks to draw attention to the crucial importance of the quality of the spaces of mobility. Spaces of intermodality and transit (stations, hubs of interchanges) and of flows (street sharing) prompt the establishment of new urban places and new mobility practices that combine information and the use of different modes to suit the circumstances, the timescales of the city, and the reasons for travel.
