Driverless Urban Futures Book Launch
WEDNESDAY, JUNE 19
5 – 7:00 PM
Join us as we celebrate the launch of Driverless Urban Futures with a short presentation by the author, AnnaLisa Meyboom. Presented in cooperation with UBC SALA.
Conceived as a speculative atlas –a roadmap to unknown territories– this book presents a series of drawings and text that unpack the potential impacts of AVs on scales ranging from the metropolis to the street. The work is both grounded in a study of the history of urban transportation and current trajectories of technological innovation, and informed by an open-ended attitude of future envisioning and design. Through the drawings and essays, Driverless Urban Futures invites readers into a debate of how our future infrastructure could benefit all members of the public and levels of society.
