Climate change and increasing resource scarcity together with rising traffic volumes force us to develop new environmentally friendly and people-oriented mobility options. In order to provide a positive mobility experience, the transition from one mobility mode to another must be managed smoothly and safely, and individual, shared or public means of transportation must become convenient and easy. Conceptual as well as existing infrastructure projects provide models for future sustainable and connected mobility. This volume focuses on the importance of design, introducing through photos, plans, and brief texts over 60 groundbreaking projects from the disciplines of product design, architecture, and urban planning. With this international overview Mobility Design portrays the current situation of sustainable mobility systems, while identifying mobility as one of the most important design tasks of the future.
With project texts by Markus Hieke, Christian Holl, and Martina Metzner
