Foster + Partners has released a video depicting their vision for a future high-speed transportation infrastructure, taking advantage of recent advances in hyperloop technology. Designed for DP World Cargospeed, a collaboration between cargo giant DP World and Virgin Hyperloop One, Foster + Partners’ vision for an infrastructural network seeks to create a new ecosystem where urban centers and rural landscapes are interconnected, as are humans and nature. Foster + Partners’ concept is in response to society’s shift towards an instant “on-demand” lifestyle where goods, services, and products are expected to be sent and received at an unprecedently rapid rate. The DP World Cargospeed system seeks to move freight “quickly, safely, on-demand, and connects seamlessly with existing modes of transportation.” While much focus has been given to the passenger potential of Hyperloop One, utilizing the same network for freight creates the opportunity for goods to move quickly and effectively to the hearts of cities, within the context of an autonomous network.
