Typically, people are focused on activities in particular locations. They hold memories and experiences connected to actions important to them. Majority of population does not hold memories of how they moved between activity points.
But in fact, we spend a lot of time just relocating ourselves.
This is what this topic is about. We want to analyze technical and economic issues, purpose, frequency and quantity of travelling people.
We see gradation of types of travel:
Travel to earth – purpose, technology, economics,
Travel to asteroids -purpose, technology, economics,
Travel on the planet –purpose (incl. tourism and entertainment) technology, economics,
Travel to other cities (if occur in the future) - purpose, technology, economics,
Travel inside the city- typology of travel routes. Definition of TRAVEL HUB
As per city design, it is crucial to define destinations and starting points for people. We want to conduct numerous analyses of people flows – daily, weekly monthly, to obtain proper communication ways' capacities.
We also aim to investigate means of transportation: electrocars, moving walks, hyperspeed trains... Are there going to be traffic jams? Crossroads with hundreds of people moving in different directions making everyday life more frustrating? Please note, that closed volumes like metro, are the possible samples of how the travel may look like.
The scope of this theme is a proposal only. We are happy to extend it.
Should you have other suggestions, answers or questions - please write a post!
