      REDCAR Colloquium September 25, 2010 California College of the Arts (CCA) | Timken Hall San Francisco, California Rethinking Urban Transportation: New Strategies for Mobility Many metropolitan areas continue to experience rapid growth, with some like Los Angeles receiving up to 500 new residents each day. One of the current challenges for expanding cities is the design of a flexible transportation infrastructure that can respond to an ever increasing demand on resources and systems; one that is contained within the vision of a socially equitable and sustainable society. This mode of infrastructural response necessitates a rethinking of traditional personal mobility strategies. The colloquium served as a vehicle to examine innovative transportation solutions in a systemic manner so as to address the reality of a typical North American polycentric metropolitan area. Instead of examining solutions that apply to idealized (but non-existent) urban centers, this colloquium embraces the contemporary condition — the messy, chaotic, politically and socially balkanized, poly-centric metropolis. By exploring current technologies, as well as those which have reached a high degree of feasibility, this interdisciplinary colloquium will explore the potential of an ubiquitous self-regulating system that can cope with and adapt to the unpredictability of a mobile society. New Strategies for Mobility - Rethinking Urban Transportation Session 2 – the overlay – explores the possibilities of how the urban realm will be transformed and how urban planning and infrastructure will react/respond. The extent of this exploration would include the varying effects to the built realm, social networks, real estate speculation, architectural response, and morphing of infrastructure. This session discusses the design implication of autonomous transit on the built & social environments. Urban development will naturally emerge around social activity hotspots. The overlay of route-processing software upon the physical realm will cause serendipitous social and transit “hot-spots” to emerge thus creating an organic evolution of true TODs. With “REDCAR-like” applications downloadable to personal communication devices, transit options will be integrated into and tailored to a users’ personal daily tasks and social interactions. Transit will adapt you and not the other way around.

        The first part of the third symposia on friday at the ARS Electronica Festival 2010 Repair, with: Gerfried Stocker, Christian Kern, Sini Zein, Alejandro Gutierrez, Alexander Neumeister, Daniel Huber und Lutz Pankow. Mobility is the essence of a globalized society—its basic requirement, the key to competitiveness, and a cause of environmental pollution. This symposium will shed light on numerous aspects of mobility including sociopolitical issues and the challenges posed by design and technology.Produced jointly by Ars Electronica and the ÖBB–Austrian Federal Railways

New Strategies for Mobility - Rethinking Urban Transportation Session 1 – the system – looks at coupling smart P2P (person to person) communication technologies with the anticipated progression of smart, clean automated vehicles to augment existing transportation networks providing a sustainable and socially networked solution to mobility for urban contexts. This session will present an overview of the latest research in transportation engineering technologies. It will focus on the “hardware” components of the concept, principally the reinvented ecologically sustainable automobile, running on an automated adaptation of existing freeway infrastructure, as well as an autonomous vehicle guidance system allowing safer navigation of the existing street systems.

            • The End of Economic Growth: Social Regression or New Beginning?

              Abstract for Steve Mock: The powering-down of the world economy ultimately mean re-localization to relatively autonomous, self-sufficient communities. Steven Mock will argue, however, that it is a mistake to assume that such re-localized communities will also be politically and socially progressive. Many social goods such as human equality, freedom of conscience, and social mobility are sustained in part by their functionality in the service of growth-oriented economic structures, and in turn those structures are the product of a unique social grouping called the nation. The removal of growth as the conceptual centre of the socio-economic system will lead to the erosion of our identification with these communities of common culture, and a decline in the need to provide the mass literacy and public education necessary to maintain them. And, without growth, competition between individuals for roles higher up the social ladder will be replaced by ascribed roles and rigid, inherently inequitable social formations. Degrowth could lead to the end of goods such as social mobility, individualism, meritocracy, egalitarian gender relations, democracy, and cosmopolitanism. Abstract for Stephen Purdey: The ever-bigger world economy is now bumping up against, and in some cases breaching constraints imposed by the finitude of the planetary bio-geosphere. Yet, more and faster growth is demanded as a political priority. How can this conundrum be explained? Complex adaptive systems often display emergent properties, that is, extra, unanticipated properties which emanate from the synergistic interactions of the system’s component parts. The human body is a complex adaptive system which exhibits the emergent property of consciousness. Can a similar property be ascribed to the human population as a whole? Stephen Purdey will present the case that human society on Earth is also a complex adaptive system, suggesting that our population may be endowed with an evolving ‘collective consciousness.’ Still at an early stage of development, this shared consciousness may be vulnerable to momentary impulses, unreflective behaviour, and simplistic ideas. One such idea—that growth is good and more is better—has been institutionalized as a non-negotiable policy priority, forming the core principle of modern global governance. Given that this idea is untenable in the long run, it must be superseded in our emergent ideational domain. A new form of global governance, guided by new ideas and principles, can foster a more mature shared worldview not premised on the lethal illogic of perpetual economic growth.
