Mobility & Transportation
Mobility goes electric and the recharging experience becomes multimodal and mixed use.
Infrastructure and buildings need to be designed to keep pace with the tremendous growth in demand for electric vehicles, from cars to scooters to electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing (eVTOL) aircraft. Electric vehicles require a longer charging period, so the recharging process opens new opportunities to co-locate live, work, and play programming facilities at charging hubs in urban areas.
Rail finds a rebirth in the U.S. with new investments in public transit and high-speed lines.
With billions of dollars in federal aid earmarked for rail improvements around the U.S. combined with an ongoing push by local officials to double-down on public rail transit, opportunities abound for designing the next generation of stations and station adjacent development (TOD).
Mobility continues to be the backbone of a 20-minute city.
Successful cities are made up of a collection of multiuse and vibrant neighborhoods in which everything you need — live, work, and play — is within your grasp. But this only works with effective mobility infrastructure: wide sidewalks, secure bike lanes, micromobility options, and a functioning transit system.
