The process starts off with the conference "Metropolis & Mobility Dialogue" this Wednesday, 16 May. The conversation between the architects and Rupert Stadler, the chairman of the executive board of Audi AG, will be transmitted worldwide via live streaming.
In many parts of the world the population is rapidly increasing. Cities are rising to the sky, there is less space for their residents and in many places the transport infrastructure cannot keep pace. The challenges vary from one city to another, as every metropolis has its own individual history. In Tokyo, for example, there are no street names and the houses are numbered according to the year of construction. On the streets of Mumbai, all kinds of vehicles coexist alongside each other.
With the second edition of the Award, Audi emphasizes its commitment to sustainable individual mobility. The competition focuses on a constructive exchange of ideas: Audi would like to directly learn from the cities of the world. All the approaches will serve as sources of information and inspiration in thinking about future mobility concepts.
