Jane’s Walk

In contribution to Jane Jacobs’ 100th birth aniversary celebrations, Improvistos has illustrated El paseo de Jane. Tejiendo redes a pie de calle, a collective book  that retraces Jane’s walks in Madrid, a series of yearly citizen-led walking tours that have taken place in the city since 2010. The book also explores many contemporary urban issues in Madrid, gathering together the work of hundreds of madrileños and more than 80 organizations involved in this initiative. As a tribute to the walks and to Jacobs’ legacy, our city drawings portray the experience of the walks themselves as narrated by its promoters and participants.
