Urban Design along Lanzhou BRT

兰州BRT城市设计

 

URBAN DESIGN ALONG BUS RAPID TRANSIT  in Lanzhou

Period: 2011
Location: Lanzhou, Gansu
Status: Completed
Client: ITDP (Institution for Transportation and Development Policy)
Team: XING Ye, YANG LiYan, WANG Guobin, ZHANG Yixiang, CHEN Yanfei, LI Qianyu

Urban Elephant was hired to design high density and pedestrian friendly station area plans for Lanzhou’s new BRT system (by ITDP), ranging from improving accessibility to defining the form of new centers and connective open spaces. The urban design proposal was well received by the Lanzhou government, and met ITDP’s Eight Principles for Transport in Urban Life: develop neighborhoods that promote walking; prioritize cycle networks; create dense networks of streets and paths; support high quality public transport; plan for mixed use; match density and transit capacity; create compact regions with short commutes; increase mobility by regulating parking an road use.

We are proud to be the urban design consultant for ITDP, an international NGO devoted to the development of Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) systems and transit oriented urbanization around the world. China’s rapidly expanding cities will benefit from cooperation between local and international experts.

兰州快速公交系统(BRT)沿线城市设计

项目时间:2011
项目地点:甘肃兰州
完成情况:项目已完结
合作单位:ITDP(交通与发展政策研究所)
设计团队:幸晔、杨力研、王国斌、张异响、陈燕妃、李倩钰

作为一个NGO组织,ITDP在国内承担了相当多的关于城市BRT系统的研究与周边城市的发展建议,很荣幸成为他们邀请的设计顾问。两个不同背景的团队的合作,令彼此都受益匪浅。中国城市化进程有两个特点:一是居民区向市郊快速扩散;二是公共服务设施仍集中在旧城区内。设计团队首先对兰州BRT沿线的城市总体情况进行了分析,再从其中选出三个具有代表性的节点进行单独分析与设计,以便从中寻找到符合ITDP八大原则的城市空间。

附ITDP八大原则:密度建设步行优先的邻里社区;优先发展自行车网络;创造密集的街道网络;支持高质量的公共交通服务;建设多功能混合的邻里社区;将土地开发强度和公共交通承载能力相匹配;确保紧凑型发展,提倡短程通勤;通过规范停车和道路使用,增加出行便利性。
