Map One - Finished

Kathryn Chinetti

This is a standard T Map, reimagined by some NuVu students from last year that we have now added our cable car line onto. 

The purple and new blue are the lines we've added, and the gold is the green line that we're replacing with cable car. 


The purple goes to: Kenmore, The Common, Children's Museum, Aquarium/Fanneuil Hall, Science Museum. 

The New Blue Line goes to: Central, Kenmore and MFA. 


We are considering cutting some stops on the gold line. 

Continuing the tower design

Daniel Alper

Today, I worked all day on the tower design. I built the floor plans on rhino, and began building the 3D model. The floor plans really helped me set up the 3D design. Some changes today, were the spiral staircase around the middle, the new oval shaped elevator, and the plan of making the structure thinner closer to the top(then larger for the top two floors). Tommarow I will hopefully finish the towers design.

Process: Logistics

Isabella took on the challenge of finding all the essential information for AIR T. Isabella started by looking at past cable car projects as important case studies in order for her to assemble the information for AIR T. Her next step was to create a spreadsheet for AIR T that would contain all of the relevant information such as cost, number of cars in the system, speed of the cars, capacity, and frequency of cars at the stations. Isabella estimated the numbers by taking the information she had found in her research on existing cable car systems, and then plugging the numbers into equations that one of her coaches helped her create. Using this information, a graph was created that placed the timing of the AIR T cable car in comparison to the rush hour timings on a Tuesday and Saturday.


Isabella created many prototypes of the logo on Illustrator and conducted a survey to determine the best logo. This resulted in the name “AIR T” with colors of the boston strong theme.


After Isabella did this she started to assemble all the information from our group and created a board with all the essential information. When planning the board Isabella had to take into account that she needed to have the maps, three renders of the stations, towers, cable cars, the description of the project, and a graph with the time comparison data and the logo.

For most of friday I was designing the stations and the towers. For the tower design I was Inspired by the cable car in London.
