Co-Creating Our Automotive Futures features a gallery of historical visions of urban futures, a co-creation space, and 3D-printed prototypes of future cars, as well as an interactive design environment.
The automobile has shaped where and how we live, creating a dependence on fossil fuels, increasing pollution, hastening climate change, and urban sprawl. It has also been at the center of how we imagine the future of our communities and even our collective identity. But as new technologies — from autonomous vehicles and ridesharing to e-scooters — reshape how people and things move around, how can we collaboratively imagine the future of the car and what that means for our lives? In this exhibit, participants will collaborate with artists and students to co-create new designs for the future of the car and what that means for our communities and cities.
