Artifact Analysis Method

Updated: Jul 24, 2023

In addition to the 4 methods that served as the base for the Bicycle User Experience concept, this blog will be translating more human centered design methods to the context of street design for everyday biking. These blog posts are initial explorations.

The sixth new method we'll explore is Artifact Analysis.

What: Examine street environment for traces and observe its condition.

Why: Gain insights into how a street is being used and compare to the intended use of the street design.

End Goal: Take the on-the-ground observations into account for future street designs.

(Translated to the context of street design for everyday biking from traditional design method: Artifact Analysis.)

Note: This initial translation has been added as a full method with additional detail to the BUX Methods Toolkit. You can access it and the other methods in the toolkit here.
