DESIRE PATHS

We've all seen those unofficial shortcut dirt trails through paths of grass that lead to the bus stop, office buildings, etc. That illicit trail is called a desired path. Desired paths are a silent form of feedback to urban planners from pedestrians about where they prefer to walk contrary to the current infrastructure.
