GROUP PROJECT (Winter 2016)
this project asked us to use data to drive the design of an urban installation during the potential los angeles 2024 olympic games. our intervention was to have a use that contributed to the topic of “transportation and mobility”, as well as consider it’s continued life in the community after the games ended.
through our analysis of mode shares around the university of southern california games site, we discovered that bicycle commuting in this area was high for the region. it is also one of the most dangerous places in los angeles to ride a bike. because traffic would increase during the games, we focused on the safety of bike riders to the olympic venue. our solution was a replicable moduLAr object that would form a temporary protected bicycle route.
after the games, this object’s design would allow it to fill multiple needs in the communiity. the moduLAr would convert to children’s play structures, bicycle racks, and benches, as well as remain as a protected lane in high collision areas.
