Abstract

This is a fundamental study on the ‘Link and Place’ theory, which establishes ‘place’ functions on streets. We conducted literature reviews, interviews, and case studies on the actual application of this theory to international street space reallocation practices and the state of progress for this theory. Upon interpreting the demand for this place function, while classifying potential demand and actual demand, we analyzed these demand classifications and indicated a policy to improve the theory for application to street traffic management practices in Japan. In specific terms, we proposed that transport hubs receive weighting when estimating potential demand and that the probability of people staying in a location be used as an indicator of actual demand in residential areas.
