Brown Bag: Metro in Many Ways

This presentation is based on a pilot study done in November 2017 in the metro of Copenhagen, focusing on Nørreport station – the busiest of all metro stations. The aim was first and foremost to test a methodological setup where the use of new technologies (thermal cameras and eye-tracking glasses) was combined with more traditional methods to study situations and interactions in urban spaces (observations and interviews). This talk will present results and insights from the study, primarily in relation to capacity issues in the metro – but also invite reflections on the methodology and further empirical studies in the metro.
