This project proposes a path towards a different kind of mobility, underscoring how the automobile has impacted the development of cities, where urban expansion has been accompanied by an increase in the number of vehicles and subsequent spatial inequity. What if, in the South, the future of the automobile would be as a tool for the transition to cities “in proximity”?
Using the iconic airport departure board as a reference, this project reflects on mobility, relating the present and future in Mexican cities, projecting urban dynamics onto a cartography of Guadalajara and Monterrey, and proposing three types of vehicles within a new lineage: open more than clean, distributed more than shared, and citizen more than urban. With these vehicles, the project seeks a transition towards a more fair and equitable mobility, a systemic mobility for a new era.
