PROCEEDINGS--FOURTH ANNUAL PEDESTRIAN CONFERENCE, PART 2-PEDESTRIAN DESIGN MEETING, SEPTEMBER 22-23, 1983

This conference was designed to disseminate information on tested engineering, education and enforcement techniques to reduce the incidence of pedestrian accidents, and to present a variety of approaches utilized in the U.S., Canada and Europe to create visually attractive, functional, and highly used urban pedestrian spaces. The conference was divided into two 2-day meetings: The Pedestrian Safety Meeting and the Pedestrian Design Meeting. The second part of the conference, the Pedestrian Design Meeting considered case studies from Europe, Canada, and the U.S. and described design techniques: Downtown San Francisco, Marketing Pedestrianism (use of computers); combined tactile electronic pedestrian guidance system for the visually impaired person in the outdoor and indoor spaces; and urban animation.
