People using Streetmix to tackle actual projects within their communities is something that warms our hearts (part 1, part 2), but our app is also supposed to be fun – and it seems that many of our users have a lot of it.
Scathing critiques, design statements, dreamscapes, even things that could be called streets only with huge suspension of disbelief… here’s a small selection of your creations that made us laugh. And think.
Note: Click on any image to see that street in Streetmix, and, by all means, remix it!

We’re very happy when people use Streetmix to propose improvements and ideas for actual streets in their cities.

While it’s possible that some parts of a town might resemble the first screenshot, our neighborhoods really have a diverse population of people (and animals!) of different ages and abilities. Urban planners must serve the needs of all of them – and we here at Streetmix, too, want to make sure they’re represented in our streets.
After all, while wide sidewalks are great for walking side by side with a friend, they’re also great for dogs and wheelchairs! Go to Streetmix to play with sidewalks now, and let us know if there’s anyone we missed!
