Jilin Metro Design

Jilin is a fast growing industrial city in Northeast China with a current population of six and a half million.

As part of the city’s public transport strategy, Space Syntax was asked by Jilin Rail Transit Construction Investment Co. Ltd. to help design the alignment of metro lines and location of stations.

In a further commission, we created designs for four major public spaces in key city locations. Each proposal creates a focus for public activity while connecting neighbourhoods that have become separated by high volumes of vehicle traffic. The designs are based on extensive analysis of the development potential of different parts of the city.
