Artifact Analysis Method

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.

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