Project description

Paradoxes are required:
We're supposed to support each other by keeping our distance -
we're supposed to help each other by stopping it from getting close.

In the context of "proximity and distance", interaction scenarios and mobility concepts are questioned.

The wheel has been reinvented daily for more than 6000 years, and usually it remains round.

As an energy- or material-saving design principle, it forms the basis for a wide range of variants and applications that move everything.

Starting from real application scenarios (social distancing, micro- and macro-mobility, the transition between indoors and outdoors, near and far, fast and slow, individual traffic and mass mobility, loads and vices, resources and routines, rollers and caterpillars, time and space, commuting and pilgrimage) - the project participants develop new perspectives which are tested and experienced in functional prototypes.

The resulting solutions will be based on the interplay of universal design, user experience, socio-economic sustainability and the fun of the vehicle.
