What is it about a small town that makes you want to go there?
Why do people flock to Beechworth, Australia for a weekend away, instead of nearby Myrtleford?
Is it the local brewery, the historic buildings, or the local ghost stories?
How would our streets, cities and people transform with ubiquitous public transport?
By 2075 there are no private cars on the “road” (autonomous or other). Instead, we had created a world with a highly integrated public transit system, accessible by everyone. It’s quick, ubiquitous and maintained with the highest quality.
I remember in one class at university we had to draw a ‘mind map’ of our experience of the city. You know, the kind where you draw bubbles and arrows to show the different interactions in your life, you’ve probably created one at some point. (I couldn’t find my original one, but drew another one here - my life circle has expanded a bit from that time, yet got more local in other ways).
