Desire Lines Analysis

Bremerholm / Holmens Kanal, Copenhagen





Copenhagenize Design Company applied its Desire Line Analysis Tool to the intersection of Bremerholm and Holmens Kanal in Copenhagen's city centre. Focusing on one specific intersection for one hour during the morning rush hour, we studied how bicycle users react to sub-standard urban design at a spot where congestion is an issue in the rush hour. We measured behaviour, specifically how bicycle users reacted to the congestion and the fact that they are forced to mix with motorised vehicles

Copenhagenize Design Company is developing similar studies for other cities.
