Sustainable Mobility in Future Cities

A further view of the Exhibition Our Cites Ourselves reviewed earlier, POSTED BYJIMENA VELOZ – some cool images  on thisbigcity 

The exhibition Our Cities, Ourselves commissioned 10 architects to imagine how a specific area of their cities should be transformed towards 2030, when the global urban population is expected to be 60 percent. All of the renovation projects explore how cities would be if they were redesigned for people, not cars, and follow principles for sustainable mobility drafted by Jan Gehl and the Institute for Transportation and Development Policy. Most projects seek to create more public space and introduce alternative transportation to solve pressing issues in the selected cities.

The Brooklyn Bridge in New York City is projected as car-free, and retrofitted for pedestrian and bicycle traffic. Another aim of the transformation is to build public space at both ends of the bridge and turn Lower Manhattan into an eco-zone with clean transportation.
