Orga Concept Cart by Milutin Rajić

Orga Cart was a college assignment where students were tasked to come up with shopping transportation design.

“Orga” is a concept shopping cart for customers to transport their purchased products inside a shop, especially in the supermarket. It will create problems for customers to go shopping without a shopping trolley that allows us to hold more than we can physically carry. This project was conceived in response to a college assignment on shopping transportation. Its goal was to minimize the weight carried by the user in a bag that is more compact than that of a shopping cart, but still provides a comfortable ride on urban terrain. The ergonomics and aesthetics was also an important aspect in the development of the project. The carrier can be used for transporting up to 30 kg (66 lbs) in bags of any material, and is made of a polished aluminum structure, polyurethane wheels and a leather-perforated polyethylene grips.

Range Rover Diamond Is A Design Study for Possible Future Range Rover Series

Range Rover Diamond Concept is a personal project from Manole Romulus, through some researches, he wanted to continue the same philosophy that is carried by all car generations of this auto manufacturer. You can read Manole’s explanations about this project below.

By analyzing the four generations, one can notice the continuous philosophy behind the construction of these vehicles. Through the graphical analysis for this purpose, one can observe the main elements this design is based on. The edges I have marked with 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5, the angle of inclination for A and D pillars (to facilitate observation, for the first generation I marked the last pillar also with D), the consoles marked with Cf and Cs, as well as in the area of wheel passages decompose the main elements and the way they have maintained continuity.

Superloop Intersection for Self-Driving Cars by Atis Sedlenieks and Dārta Dambe

Superloop has been designed as part as competition project for Tallinn Architecture Biennale “Self-Driven City”. The project was awarded honorable mention.

This proposal is intended for time when autonomous cars will be 100% main city transportation. What will that mean for city streets and intersections?

Time is most valuable unit and humankind always are longed for doing most in less time. The goal to “travel to destination faster” is one of the main drive reasons for transport infrastructure evolution. Horses, bicycles, trains, cars, aircrafts etc. The efforts to reach this goal will guide the development of the technology and the city also in the times to come. Autonomous cars definitely will solve the more productive use of travel time itself, but this time after all won’t solve the base goal – “travel to destination faster”. Cities and roads that are adapted to autonomous cars can help to reach this goal.

As there will be no human error there will be no or very high speed limit. Today speed limit on city roads varies from 30- 50km/h. With only autonomous cars on roads speed limit could be 150km/h. If speed limit is that high, the only thing stopping cars are intersections. Autonomous cars have to slow down taking turn because of centrifugal forces acting on vehicle. Tires don’t have enough grip and car simply slips out of the turn or flips over. This is where superelevation comes in when designing roads.
Our proposal is aiming for intersection solution concept that is as fast as possible. Concept that can be adapted and used in every intersection no matter how much traffic lanes are intersecting. In that way there is no traffic jams and for the first time city can narrow car roads leaving more space for pedestrians and bicyclists.

Vertical City : Modular Skyscraper Structure for Middle East

Vertical City is a design proposal by Luca Curci architects for a vertical city-building settled in the water project located in Middle East. It’s a special project that combines sustainability with population density, the goal here is to build a zero-energy city building.

It started by analyzing contemporary skyscraper structure, conceived as a compact element, smooth, and alienated from the surrounding space. This project tries to re-interpret the structure in an opened structure, equipped with green areas on each level with lots of natural light and ventilations. In this way, its residents might be able to enjoy a healthier lifestyle in connection with natural elements by rethinking the traditional concept of community and society.

Vertical City’s structure is based on a modular structural pre-fabricated element, enabling the building to be arranged repeatedly horizontally as well as vertically. The singular shape of the structural element creates a unique 3D network that sustains every single floor. This structure is surrounded by a membrane of photovoltaic glasses that provides electricity to the whole building, making it self sustained building.
