-FINALIST of Street of Tomorrow Competition


The street of tomorrow will be adaptive, responsive, and integrated. The advent of a synergized array of technological adaptations, collecting and relaying information at rapid rates, will unlock the potential of a dynamic street: a place that will communicate and transform based on the needs of the current moment.


Rather than supplanting yesterday’s streets, the street of tomorrow will marry the indelible role of streets as public spaces and their functional aspect as transportation infrastructure. A field of adaptive technological innovations can shift the priority of the contemporary street away from vehicles and back to people, nurturing socialization, exchange, and a stage for public life.


The key is an unprecedented ability to manage competing interests through data feedback and adaptive components such as internet-of-things, materiality, and dynamic lighting. There is less need today for the static solutions that were invented to limit conflict: for curbs, dedicated lanes, and rigid separations of traffic. Allow the transportation function to be exported to partial or complete autonomous management and the street can again be retaken in the name of people, and the host of activities that they will bring to a collective and free space.
