Public Space, Public Life Norman is modeled on the work of Danish urban designer Jan Gehl. Students focused on the urban core of Norman including the University of Oklahoma campus, Campus Corner neighborhood, and Main Street. Study topics included bus ridership patterns, lighting, facade analysis, public seating inventory, population, auto traffic counts, and detailed bike and pedestrian traffic counts. The study revealed more than 6,000 daily pedestrian trips on OU’s South Oval and explores the patterns of the traffic throughout the day.
