Video: Peter Murray of New London Architecture Outlines his Cycling Vision

In the latest video from Crane.tv, architectural journalist and planner Peter Murray ruminates on the benefits of integrating cycling into the urban fabric of the world's biggest cities. "For the last half century, we've bowed down to the god of the motor car and have destroyed cities across the UK," says Murray, Chairman of New London Architecture and the London Society. Murray and his team at New London Architecture are charged with analyzing and advocating for the improvement of London's Built environment, acting as advisors to Mayor Boris Johnson on an array of projects including the overhaul of cycling infrastructure in the city.

Murray discusses his foray into cycling around the world, most recently from Portland, Oregon, to Portland Place in London, via New York City. Through his adventures in cycling across the United States and Europe, Murray has gained insight into best practices with an eye towards implementation in London. Inspired by Dutch cycling infrastructure, "Mini Hollands" are London's latest project, spearheaded by the NLA and executed under a major redevelopment of London's bicycle infrastructure, designed to create entire communities where bicycles rule the roads and vehicles are a thing of the past.
