Street of the Week No.2: Crenelated Curbs in Barcelona

Crenelated Curb in Barcelona, Spain This street in Barcelona, Spain has what was likely intended to be a pedestrian-friendly median with a crenelated curb that allows people to cross the street at any location they please while providing a barrier from vehicles at the same time. However, instead of the friendly atmosphere it comes across more like a sparse, paved prison bordered by teeth instead of bars. A nice concept but perhaps the execution could use a bit more design refinement.
