BROAD AND COLUMBIA SUBWAY DEVELOPMENT STUDY: FINAL REPORT

GRADUATE AND UNDERGRADUATE STUDENTS AT TEMPLE UNIVERSITY IN PHILADELPHIA FORMED AN INTER-DISCIPLINARY TEAM REPRESENTING THE FIELDS OF ARCHITECTURAL AND URBAN DESIGN, SOCIAL PLANNING, ECONOMICS, SOCIAL PSYCHOLOGY, AND COMMUNICATIONS. THEY CONCENTRATED THEIR EFFORTS ON THE REDESIGN OF THE BROAD AND COLUMBIA SUBWAY STATION NEAR THE CAMPUS. THEY CONDUCTED EXTENSIVE CONSUMER PREFERENCE AND JOINT PLANNING STUDY SESSIONS AND MADE ANALYSES OF ECONOMIC, PHYSICAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECTS OF THE SUBWAY ENVIRONMENT. BASED ON THESE, THEY THEN DESIGNED CHANGES FOR THE STATION WHICH WOULD SATISFY HUMAN NEEDS AND DESIRES IN THE MOST EFFECTIVE MANNER. THEY ALSO RECOMMENDED RELEVANT CHANGES IN THE AREA ADJACENT TO THE STATION AND FOR THE PHILADELPHIA SUBWAY SYSTEM IN GENERAL. /AUTHOR/
