I saw an interesting exhibition recently that helped me to understand how human mobility has shaped cities and urban areas over time, through to the near future. I had the chance to talk with the organiser of the show, Jean-Marie Duthilleul, after my visit, so I asked him some questions...
Watch this six-minute interview and tell us what you think! Here are the questions I asked Jean-Marie Duthilleul:
How has the way we see the city of the future changed over time? The exhibition poster recalls the highly creative and visionary utopias of the 20th century. In terms of our new vision of the future, at this show I saw the idea of humans in movement in a connected city. What do you think?
What’s the new equation between city and transport? What lessons have we learned on the superposition of transport modes that have developed independently of each other over time, such as trams, train and metros?
How does the connected individual shape today’s cities? And the cities of tomorrow?
Are connected individuals the same the world over? Today’s major world cities are in a sort of race for more and more connectivity. Isn’t there a risk that they will come to resemble each other too much and lose their identity?
Visit the exhibition !
At Cité de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine, Palais de Chaillot, Paris, through 26 August 2012.
