Under the joint guidance of Mr. Lin and Mr. Jiao, five students accomplished their award-winning work ¡°EMARA¡± (Easy Mobility and Reactive Area) through software learning, theoretical research, contesting topic interpretation and design optimization. The work gave full consideration to the function and three-dimensional transportation layout. It detailed the design of the Keelung station to different functional areas of every floor and adopted a novel appearance design --- earth-sheltered architecture, embodying the idea of environment protection. The work emphasizes on the traffic flow of people, hoping to resolve the traffic problem of car and people flow in the station through designing.
