Oakley Personal Gear Vehicle Interior Design Study for 2024

Submitted by Hyukwoo Kwon, this project is about a modern interior for personal vehicle. It’s been designed based on the idea what if Oakley designed for transportation, how would it turn out to be and what would be the outcome in the future?

This project is about how it would be if the car can wear the gear just like a person with backpack, glasses, or other accessories. Car interior is an environment made by many different products. How it looks if one person vehicle has replaceable function such as Oakley eyewear sunglasses. It is not only for the engine and steering wheel, but also the wheels and the backseat can be part of the gear for a particular function and customized style regardless of the terrain.

Oakley is a brand well known for its sports eyewear products. Beginning with the motorcycle anti-slip handle, Oakley has been growing up worldwide as comprehensive sporting gear company. It’s now not only known for fashion sunglasses or sports goggles, but also for clothing, backpack, shoes, watch, etc. Why Oakley? With the advent of 3D printing technology, product companies became better suited to incorporating more complex designs. This with Oakley brand’s design language, made it possible to envision the future story of the progression in the design industry. Above all, I chose Oakley to emphasize Oakley’s image of developing sports goggles, watch, boots all of which contained the sporty and protective design elements that aligned well with transportation interior design.

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.

Urban Skyfarm : Future Vertical Farm for Urban Areas

Based on recent studies, in the future, most world’s population will live in urban areas, and the total of world population will increase by about 3 billion people. Urban Skyfarm proposal was inspired by Dr. Dickson Despommier’s concept of vertical farm, it’s a possible solution to deal with our future problems of land shortage, deforestation, and of course, environmental pollution due to over population.

The idea here is to locate a vertical farm in downtown of Seoul, right adjacent to the Cheonggyecheon stream which is an ideal place to host local food production and distribution. This skyfarm takes advantage of hydroponic system as substitution to soil based agricultural extensions, yet it is able to produce the same food but more efficient and healthy thanks to controlled environment (heat, light, moisture). Urban Skyfarm will be a zero energy facility, it uses renewable energy produced by both solar and wind energy for the production process, including transportation and food distribution.

Google Self-Driving Car Could Be The Future of Our Mobility

Google has released some images related to its Self Driving car project, it looks like a toy though, cute and compact. The progress looks good so far, imagine that you can go downtown for lunch without having to deal with the burden of driving or wasting 20 minutes to find parking. If this project comes to reality, we can kiss good bye to drunk and distracted driving.

Currently, Google is building some prototypes to make sure the car operates safely and autonomously without any human intervention. Google Self-Driving car won’t have any steering wheel, accelerator/brake pedal, because you don’t need them. The power lies within the software and sensors that do all the hard work for passengers. Simply press the start button, this car would take you anywhere you want to go, this should be the future of our mobility.

Architectural Vision of the Future : Aquapolitain by HWANG Tzy-Lung Stefan

Cities were first built at the water’s edge to benefit from its beneficence, but some are nowadays threatened by rising sea level and their lands will decrease while their growth always requires more space and the surrounding land no longer allow expansion. Building on the sea is more than conceivable, especially as technically feasible.

Several solutions exist today to build on the sea, the most common technique now is the landfill to create artificial land, however, the future rather belongs to floating architecture, less destructive to the seabed, but more flexible than land or landfill to allow mobility of facilities, where there are needs, no more destruction and reconstruction, place to relocation site.

New technologies are being developed to provide the foundation for these future large floating architectures, and the first achievements are in the ways of finalization. Ultimately, these floating architectures will be different from land architectures only by their foundations and their implementation. The way is open, but major preparatory projects are still needed to carry out cities on the water.

The Pulse : Future Transportation System That Is Based On Cable Gliding Principle

This is the vision of our future transportation in megacity by Matej Dubis, The Pulse. It’s a concept that brings ecological and efficient transportation system by practicing the same principle as cable gliding. By utilizing this principle, vehicles don’t need to have powerful engines as they take advantage of gravity to gain acceleration, and any other energy needed will be supported by the lifting “knots”, crossroads of the system’s web. Vehicle runs in regular centralized waves that create the pulse, the rope utilizes a biomimetic technology (technology that mimics nature) of artificial muscles in order to support the gliding movement and provide necessary local interventions.

Since the design was based on purely experimenting and creating unconventional transportation system, therefore, it’s still at the stage of raw ideas, not compromised by technical or safety requirements. The Pulse can transport hundreds of passengers however, there’s another choice for passengers to enjoy private ride using only 4-person pod.

Redesigning Commercial Aircraft by Shabtai Hirshberg Means A Greener Future For The Aviation Industry

Shabtai Hirshberg has recently graduated from Transportation Design MFA program at the College for Creative Studies (CCS) in Detroit, Michigan. His thesis “Redesigning Commercial Aircraft” was based on extensive research on the commercial aviation market, the result was innovative aircraft with revolutionary improvement, forward thinking design, future technology that were all incorporated into our future commercial aircraft design.

As we already know, commercial aviation is a rapid growing market and it’s been predicted that it will have at least 100% increase in number of flights by the time we reach 2030. The fact that fuel price keeps on increasing, we can tell that airlines business has become less profitable, and the result is most airlines will make major cutbacks such as reducing passengers comfort by reducing legroom.
