The ALT305 team submitted the Stair Activation Idea which was selected by the Miami Foundation and Health Foundation of South Florida to be implemented. The project includes a series of dots that start leading people from the street, crosswalk, sidewalks and bus stops into the Brickell Area Metro Station. Once inside, a hopscotch component leads the way to the staircase, encouraging the user to use the healthier alternative to go up to the platform. The staircase is located side by side with the escalator and in front of the elevator. The entire project was designed by the ALT305 team (two young architects) within the concept of "play" using the legendary Pacman.
The project includes an app component which prompts participants to log in and keep track of their wellness based on the amount of steps climbed and subsequently, flights of stairs taken each day.

The intent is to test the idea and have people support it for implementation in other stations and communities.
