The 2018 Movement Call for Ideas seeks ideas on the human connection to place. Using the new Green Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project in Calgary as a platform for new ideas, the call aims to rethink the present and future of transportation.
As technology advances continue to transform mobility, considerations of sustainable, economic, inclusive and accessible options for urban living are something not to be considered lightly. Public infrastructure and the systems that we create to facilitate movement within the urban realm are a design responsibility of human concern.
What is the relationship between the animate and inanimate as we define how we move? Can our children move freely and we feel that they are safe? How can a person with cognitive challenge get to a transit stop on their own? How do we begin to understand the Indigenous pre-railway history of this landscape? How do we ensure that design reflects and advances an inclusive city? What physical barriers might we shed?
This call seeks ideas that explore how we move today and how, as humans, we will move tomorrow.
