Road Environmental Design from Filed Study of "Shared Space"
Access this Article
In recent years, certain results of the safety and comfort of shared space have also been provided. In this research, we reanalyzed 10 cases of shared space of previous research. In the meantime, we also conducted field investigation of 5 cases of shared space and similar shared space in Japan, and conducted comparative study on the shared space both in Japan and abroad. We found that due to lack of instruction from signs and traffic light in the shared space, it will strengthen eye contact between pedestrians and users of vehicles, which can reduce the speed of vehicles. Secondly, the shared space at current stage is not completely shared, and some traditional measures are still used to limit the speed, such as the speed bumps, etc. In addition, the design of each segment of shared space should be consistent with the actual transportation situation of city. Last but not the least, by removing the signs, it can truly improve the comfort and strengthen the security of space. Based on the cases in Japan, we found that it could increase the comfort of road, and it was easier for pedestrians to pass by. Therefore, there is certain possibility to implement shared space in Japan.Art and Design Research for Sustainable Development ; September 22, 2018Conference: Tsukuba Global Science Week 2018Date: September 20-22, 2018Venue: Tsukuba International Congress Center Sponsored: University of Tsukuba
