Future Urban Mobility 2013

What does mobility mean today and what will it look like in the (near) future? How will the cities and towns of the future change our mobility habits and thus our means of transport – and vice versa? In a workshop and lecture evening we want to spotlight the topic of Future Urban Mobility from the perspectives of various designers – ranging over industrial design, information design and architecture, also technology and development – and investigate in depth how designers can be influenced by this process of change. National and international representatives of the branch will come together to present their visions and ideas and take part in a panel discussion. The workshop is being organised in co operation with aspern Die Seestadt Wiens (Vienna’s Urban Lakeside) and Spirit Design. Design students work on interdisciplinary concepts and scenarios and present them in an evening devoted to the topic. In conclusion, the evening presents a showing of the film “Urbanized” – a documentary about urban design.
