Die Zeit publishes a paper on intra-urban freight. This paper is relevant for the variant 4 scenario of the post-car world.
“Im innerstädtischen Lieferverkehr könnten Lastenräder eine größere Rolle spielen, vor allem solche mit Elektromotor. In der Praxis gibt es aber noch Probleme.”
Subproject C considers the transition from a car-oriented architecture and urban planning in a post-car world.
And what if the alteration of the object car happened by going beyond its transportation function towards an pobject of social exchange?
This TED video makes a similar reflection about the diverse roles which can be played by the bicycle in an urban environment.
A moving walkway or moving sidewalk, known in British English as a travellator or a travelator, is a slow moving conveyor mechanism that transports people across a horizontal or inclined plane over a short to medium distance.
The first moving walkway debuted at the World’s Columbian Exposition of 1893, in Chicago, Illinois. It had two different divisions: one where passengers were seated, and one where riders could stand or walk. It ran in a loop down the length of a lakefront pier to a casino. Six years later a moving walkway was also presented to the public at the Exposition Universelle de Paris in 1900.
Today, moving walkways are mainly used in airports. Subproject B considers the extention of their use to an urban area.
