Moving Forward explores new design directions for transportation, from modern door-to-door journeys, to mass transit solutions and luxurious vehicles, to future visions for space travel.
New designs for planes, trains, tubes, trams, bicycles and automobiles are considered, as well as hybrid or cross-over vehicles, such as flying cars, ruck-sack bikes and mobile homes.
Interviews with leading transport design thinkers and case studies illustrate the major influences and identify the leading trends. Innovations in technology, materials and processes are a key feature of future travel, as well as changing demographics, live-work patterns, environmental concerns and safety criteria.
Moving Forward is essential reading for designers, architects, industry professionals and will also appeal to vehicle enthusiasts.
