Micro Transportation Planning—A Case Study of Pan Jia Yuan Antique Market, Beijing China
This project was a pre-study for the UT-Austin, Tsinghua (China), and UPC (Spain), three-university joint design studio in Beijing, China, Fall 2015. The design site was the Pan Jia Yuan antique market, which has 4000 antique shops and 10000 antique dealers. This study focuses on the transportation and circulation problems in and around the Pan Jia Yuan antique market in Beijing, China. It aims to develop a multi-modal transportation plan for the Pan Jia Yuan market and its surrounding neighborhood. Profs.

Results from this study and the studio will be applied to solve similar problems in these high density road markets in the world. This grant was used to support three professor’s Montemayor , Zhang, and Jiao’s travel to China.
