CityScope, 2018

This is a CityScope. It was designed by City Science Group, MIT Media Lab. It is dated 2018. Its medium is aluminum, electronics, mirrors, acrylic, wood, plastic.

CityScope is an interactive tool that helps one visualize two extreme versions of a future with driverless cars. Will we create an ownership society with private driverless cars? Or a world of lightweight shared social mobility robots available to all? In one scenario, streets are dominated by machines and density leads to congestion and anxiety. The other is a more vibrant city where humans recapture streets, and the benefits of mixed use density, creative interactions, and equity increase.
