How will automated vehicles change our lives? Where are the opportunities and challenges?
Automatic for the City is a reflection on the relationship between new technologies and urbanism, as well as an agile urban design manual with pictures illustrating potential spatial arrangements enabled by new technologies. Two case studies in the central urban cores of London and Los Angeles are presented to show how neighbourhoods can be redesigned for the better and how good urban design principles can be applied across towns and cities worldwide.
