We walk from a street into a building without thinking about the boundary between the two. Sometimes, we even bring our transportation choices with us: we wheel our bicycles into our homes and drive our cars into garages.
With the rise of electrification, the boundaries that separate vehicles from habitable spaces will completely blur. Not only will vehicles further integrate into our homes, workplaces, and communal spaces, but they will potentially become those environments. This coming together will represent not the overlap of known experiences but the establishment of entirely new experiences.
One Size Doesn't Fit All
By creating semi-permeable and mobile spaces of various sizes, we can open up new possibilities for infrastructure, commuting habits, wellbeing, and connections between people and communities.
In this brave new world, we will transcend long-held definitions of physical and social structures to offer new possibilities for freedom, mobility, and community connections.
These new urban systems would then allow cities and spaces to reassemble into infinite states in a more adaptive way that supports the blurring of lifestyles.
