The Mobility Studios explore the interconnections and spaces between slow transport and public transport. Mobility in 2032 is networked and decentralised.
The studios include the premise that Melbourne has had to develop a more localised way of life (i.e. more access to local services / food / health / education / more localised work facilities), and that any activities (passenger & freight movement) that do not take place within 2 – 5 km are reached via a rapid public transport system. Cars are not designed out of the system, but by proposing that peak oil has happened and petrol is in excess of $5.00 a litre, studio projects can be system- as well as object- (vehicle) focused.
