Public Transport System for 2030 for PACE Forum Design Competition

The Public Transport System for 2030 project was carried out for PACE forum Design competition for the Category of “Emerging Market Mobility Vehicle”. The concept is a hybrid of public and private transportation providing quick access built with existing infrastructure with minimal space and time. The design addresses the shortcomings of Flyovers and metros (robust structures owing to dead weight) which would require high consumption of raw materials, construction time, and money. The future vision consists of pre built structures which would minimize traffic disruption during construction.

We notice that each flying pod can carry up to 2 person, yes it’s more private but we kinda hope that it can carry more persons to eliminate any queue. We believe there are many people who would choose to use this flyover instead of land transportation, because it’s fast and quiet.

We usually see Jet or Space craft designs from Oscar Viñals, this time, he has submitted a concept cargo airplane. You can read his detail description about this project below.

AWWA-VA “GIGAbay” is a concept of a “green” cargo airplane for this 21st century, based primary on its high ratio of eco-friendly purpose and its big versatile capacity to adapt to many working environment. Thanks to its advanced systems and materials, it makes this cargo:

  • Energy efficient
  • Fewer emissions
  • Less aircraft noise until 30% compared with current standards
  • Big capacity of cargo with a volume of 2,303m3 and more than 220 tons of payload, with an internal advanced and active fuselage system
  • Capable to generate “green” power, thanks to superconductivity technology, fuel cell stack, wind generators, and solar energy
  • Equipped with 4 Hybrid engines – electric / fuel & two electric engines
  • Less damages in a hypothetical emergency landing with “auto-break” wings system
  • Less drag and weight (increasing the payload cargo)
  • Less fuel consumption and damaging emissions

AWWA-VA GIGAbay is the version for cargo transport of the AWWA “Sky Whale” concept plane, with similar base. It would be equipped with a new advanced technologies from alloys, ceramic or fiber composites, carbon nanotube and fiber optic cabling, smart materials (SMA), Hybrid & E-engines (E-e), active wings with wind generators inside. It is capable to create electric energy with micro solar cells in hexagonal geometry like a part of structure’s ceiling or through two big electromagnetic generators named W.E.R.D.S. (wind energy recovery duct system) based in superconductivity technology and fuel cell stack –Hydrogen- that transforms the air flow in energy.

The airplane’s fuselage offers a big compartment to have a maximum volume of cargo in order to transport huge items, for example sections of commercial airplanes, like two Airbus A350 XWB’s sections or 4 EC-725 Super Puma copters. The cargo bay provides a volume of 2,303m3 and depending on its configuration (versatility) would have the cargo’s distribution in two decks to carry more than 220 tons of weight. The bay could be equipped with a crane of double rail capable to move items up to 30 tons along the cargo bay. It also features an adaptable and mobile platform to carry up the cargo.

Filotto : Elegant Pool Table with Crystal Structure

Filotto, a classic game of billiards gets a make over. Designed for Calma e Gesso, this design answers the challenge to re-create a product with such a long history without so much evolution. A game of billiards was a symbol of leisure originating back from the palaces of the bourgeois which then has become a popular sport across generations. However, the pool table design has always been a work of artisan carpentry, a design that is “frozen in time”.

Taking away the strongest elements of traditional pool table design and re-interpreting them into a new product, Adriano Design has managed to re-create familiar green wool suspended in beautiful crystal structure.
