Can mobility improve livability in cities?

The time we live in offers the opportunity to return to the drawing board and rethink livable cities. As a society, we seem to be on a mission to make systems as efficient as possible.

In the current design, the system’s efficiency and, as a derivative, urban planning for cars are central. It seems as if cities are made for cars, not for people.

Consciously or unconsciously, we view mobility through an efficiency lens. Challenging this is vital for innovation.

Dutch Design Foundation

The Dutch Design Foundation (DDF) offers designers opportunities, support, publicity and a platform. The DDF annually organizes the Dutch Design Week, a world renowned design event in Eindhoven. The past 5 years we have been curator of the Embassy of Urban Mobility, a platform for a network of partners who are looking with a new perspective to cities. Not from an efficiency point of view, but from happiness. The goal? Developing new perspectives and concrete solutions for mobility in cities.

The services applied in this project are systems analysis, trend research, and vision and strategy development.
