New Mobility and the Future of City Design

Combined with ride-sharing services, driverless vehicles could dramatically impact the way we design our cities—for better or worse. We have the opportunity to reverse decades of design practices that have prioritized the movement of automobiles over people. However, this disruption could also produce a new kind of auto-centric future that is more sprawling, less healthy, and just as congested. This panel will discuss how cities should address these questions.
