Washington, D.C.

Design Is People

The premiere episode of City Walk shines a spotlight on the most exotic and exciting walks in America, and travels to cities across the country that are currently transforming themselves into more walkable communities. With stops in Pasadena, Washington D.C., and New York City, the episode offers a personalized look at the changing landscape for pedestrians. We also discover how walking rehabilitation helped teenager Daniela recover from a sudden stroke, and how technology that once promised an easy future may now be harmful to your health. On the lighter side, the episode questions non-walkers on their excuses for sitting around, has fun encouraging people to get up and move with a viral video, and features short vignettes that celebrate the beauty of stepping outside.
