Last friday, 

I scaled all the images, and finished up the cable car designs. At the end I finished a rough draft of the building, and made floor layouts. Today i will finish up the tower model, and floor layouts.

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.

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.

The green line is the oldest subway line in the United States. There has been a plan to expand it further into new neighborhoods but budget constraints are complicating the process. How would you feel about replacing the green line with cable cars? Where would you place the stations? How would the whole system cost? 

At the end of the studio, students will present a comprehensive proposal that outlines the location of stations, a design of a station, and a business plan.
