What is the state of mobility in 2020?

Electric-powered vehicles, ride-sharing & on-demand services, autonomous driving, advanced sensors and interconnected vehicles: many innovations and paradigm shifts on our approach to mobility are reshaping the way we move around, while design and architecture play a key role in supporting this transformation.

We have involved a number of experts and leaders to explore this change through their own words: Gereon Uerz Leader of Foresight Europe at multinational architecture & design firm Arup, Valerio Cometti founder of V12 Design, Vance Ng Director of Land Transport Authority of Singapore, Tim Fendley founder of Applied and responsible for the wayfinding system of Legible London.

From the 22nd to the 26th of June we will inquire about the challenges faced by mobility services and how changes in people’s behaviors can radically transform our transportation standards.

Among the names involved in interviews and case studies we mention will Lowie Veremeersch, the founder of Granstudio, operating at the intersection of vehicle, service design and urbanism; Joseph Schwarzkopf from Ecuadorean firm Uribe Schwarzkopf, working on development around the first metro line of Quito; Milan-based scooter-sharing services Mimoto and Helbiz; British design studios Seymourpowell and New Territory; and further contributions from Lunewave and Upshift.
