The results are two years of research on how management, civic engagement, and urban re-organization have been contextualized in different countries, cities, stations, and social fabrics.

Broadly speaking, European cities have focused on environmental issues, such as shifting away from motorization; the United States on renewing and expanding station and peripheral functions; and Asia on the introduction of new transportation infrastructure. The different projects have been classified into 10 themes reflecting their function and goals. Text in English and Japanese.
