Copenhagenize Design Co. - white paper

Eight fantastic students from the 4Cities Masters programme in Urban Studies performed a classic Copenhagenize Design Co. Desire Lines Analysis of one of the busiest corner in the city. Where Søtorvet meets Dronning Louises Bro - the latter being one of the busiest bicycle streets in the world.

After so many Desire Lines Analyses in Copenhagen, we know that on average only 7% of Copenhageners bend or break a Danish traffic law on their bicycles. At this location, many cyclists cut the corner across a wide swath of sidewalk. We wanted to analyse their behaviour at this key location.
