Downtown - Pershing Square Metro Red Line Station

Project Date: 1999

Beyond urban planning applications, the possible uses of the model are endless. For example, the team has been in discussions with the Metropolitan Transportation Authority and the L.A. Police Department about using the model to plan security efforts in Los Angeles' new subway system. The Pershing Square station was chosen as the test case and is complete with moving subway cars and private ancillary spaces.

Other discussions with the City of Los Angeles have focused on the feasibility of using the model in conjunction with Global Positional System (GPS) transponders to accurately locate and remotely manage Emergency Response Vehicles in real-time.
