Audi Urban Future Initiative: The state of our urbanized world

Audi Urban Future Initiative: The state of our urbanized world

A few days ago we had the chance to attend the Audi Urban Future Awards, where 5 young and innovative practices presented their visions on the future of mobility for five of the world’s most intense urban regions: Boston/Washington Area (USA), Mumbai (India), Sao Paulo (Brasil), Istanbul (Turkey) and the Pearl River Delta region (China).

The Audi Urban Future Award went to Höweler + Yoon and their proposal for BosWash, a new mega region that connects commuters and center through a new intelligent infrastructure, a project that Audi has committed to push forward.

These regions deal with the most important issues that cities are facing in the urban era: the dilemma between density and sprawl, opportunities, transportation, long term versus fast growth, energy, infrastructure, and as we have seen in the last days, the natural environment.

In the following videos we will see the thorough diagnostics of the cities presented by the architects, along with a short description of their projects. Their proposals will be featured in a following article.

Istanbul, Mumbai, Perl River Delta and Sao Paulo after the break:

Istanbul (Turkey) by Superpool

Mumbai (India) by CRIT

Perl River Delta (China) by NODE

Sao Paulo (Brazil) by Urban-Think Tank
