Street Space Utilization Inventory 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 fourteenth new method we'll explore is Street Space Utilization Inventory.



What: Calculation and visualization of the allocation of space to different uses on a street.

Why: Assess how space is allocated on a street and develop easily understandable visuals and numbers to communicate this and inform future street designs.

End Goal: Street space is allocated efficiently to best serve the users and purpose of the street.


(This method was inspired by the traditional design method of Content Inventory and the Arrogance of Space methodology employed by Copenhagenize Design Co.)

What are your thoughts? How do you think this method could be used in practice, and by whom (planners, advocacy groups, elected officials)?
