Brooklyn Bridge - city hall: rethinking the New York subway station
MetadataShow full item record
As subway ridership around the world increases the typology has an opportunity to play an increasingly important role in the daily routine of urban dwellers. Underground spaces pose unique psychological and physiological stresses on occupants; therefore, an opportunity exists to rethink the subway station interior to respond to experiential and existential conditions of the traveler. This practicum aims to address these issues by redesigning an existing subway station that responds to convergence of picnolepsy, non-place, and biophilic design methodologies. Project goals include a design that focuses on experiential and emotional qualities to create a more exciting and comfortable space without impeding existing efficiencies.
