Why Alleys Deserve More Attention – Design – The Atlantic Cities
Alleys as tight urbanism – great way to characterize them.
In America, by the way, it’s rare that you find a shop in an alley, but this is common in Melbourne, Tokyo, Kyoto, Osaka. Even major department stores have cut storefront windows into the back of their buildings that open onto alleys. And in Melbourne in particular, graffiti is endorsed by the city, it’s become an iconic aspect of their laneways.
