The way we move around cities is changing. In London, new mobility products are becoming a more common sight, rideshare services are increasing in popularity and driverless cars are currently being tested in parts of the capital.

Future mobility presents a more flexible, easier and enjoyable service, yet there is still little understanding of what the impact might be to the wider physical infrastructure of the city. How do we ensure we make the most of new mobility technologies, whilst ensuring they serve as a means to achieving human-centric design that supports the sustainable growth of the city and its citizens?
 
Throughout the history of city building, transportation technologies have driven the urban form. From the first dense urban centres created for pedestrians, to the modern era of urban sprawl associated with the mass adoption of the motorcar, modes of transport affect everything about how a city functions, feels and evolves.
 
It is clear that the environmental cost, the social isolation, the crisis of inactivity and physical disconnection some transportation technologies have brought does not correlate with the cities we want to build and inhabit.
 
Future Streets looks at the past, present and future of London’s streets, analysing the current landscape of innovation in mobility technologies, transport policies and urban planning approaches. It presents future scenarios and provokes thinking about what kind of city we want to inhabit and what role technology should play in realising that view.

Pop-Up Cycle Parking by Cyclehoop

If you are planning to visit Future Streets, to encourage active transport our friends at Cyclehoop have kindly gifted us cycle parking. The two car-shaped ports demonstrate the space efficiency we lose when driving; two car parks are equivalent to 20 cycle parks. You’ll find the pair of cheery yellow ports just outside the main entrance to The Building Centre, and they will stay in place until Friday 13 December.
