Mobility, Optionality and the Ideal of Synoptic Utopias

Social change is often viewed as a push-pull process between two extreme moments of history: the past, as idealized and reconstructed from historical documents, and the future, as projected and synthesized in “magnetic images”. Confirming the reciprocal influence between mobility and urbanity, our focus on urban visions - both historic precedents and current perspectives - traces a transition from mono-metric approaches driven by technology to plural stances which attempt to facilitate optionality, providing mobility networks that enable access to urban qualities at the ‘speeds that matter’.
