Abstract: Walking is commonly defined as getting from point A to point B. It is a transitory space we go through to get to where we want to go. However, is there a reason why we do some of our best creative thinking when we are up and about on our two feet? Why do some of the world’s greatest minds have one habit in common, that is, walking? In my own personal life, I have found that the best remedy for a creative block or a bad day is a long, solitary walk. I walk home every single day. On weekends, I walk for hours to clear my mind. Something amazing takes place when walking no longer becomes a way to get from Point A to Point B. When we walk, we think and when we think, we walk. This project aims to provide a new perspective on easily the most common and mundane thing we do every single day and bring new and fresh perspective to what walking is and what walking can be. It takes on a metaphorical approach to redefine what it means to walk and specifically how it relates to thinking. The objective of the project is to offer a new definition of walking through design.
