Social Space and Daily Commuting - Phenomenological Implications
Artikel i övriga tidskrifter, 2014
Encouraging use of public transit is one important way to reduce energy consumption and counter climate change. In my research on the design of Swedish travel centers, I have studied the transit stations for the planned “West Link,” an underground railway tunnel through Gothenburg that will increase the capacity for commuter traffic. I ask how one might design public-transport spaces that incorporate safety, comfort, unambigu-ous orientation, and aesthetic values. A thorough answer to this question might help de-signers and planners to create more sustainable, user-friendly urban spaces.
