Architecture After the Street will develop new architectural typologies by imagining a different presence for the car. If the contemporary city up until now has been designed to the car's specifications of movement, then we will develop new concepts of urban motion that influence the design of the car.
Architecture After the Street is part of Experiments in Motion - a research initiative conducted by the Columbia University Graduate School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation in partnership with Audi of America to develop and test new paradigms in the relationship between motion, mobility and design. The program will draw from global thought leaders from around the university, architecture and design professionals, and an expanded network of urban mobility experts from New York City and Audi.
As part of the Audi Urban Future Research, Experiments in Motion represents the U.S. pilot of a series of locally driven, interdisciplinary research and student programs with the world's leading institutions and schools, tapping into the vast potential of academic intelligence and emerging talent.
