2014 Ed Bacon Student Design Competition – How Will Driverless Cars Shape the Philadelphia of Tomorrow?

Pre-Registration Deadline: 11:59PM, October 3, 2013
Competition Takes Place: October 04 – November 01, 2013
Recent major advances in driverless technology mean automobiles and their infrastructures are likely to transform American cities in the coming century. What will Philadelphia look like in this future? How will roadways, sidewalks, intersections, signage, traffic signals, and the relationship between buildings, roadways, pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles change? We challenge university-level students to re-imagine the right of way occupied by intelligent automobiles and the associated impact on urban design.
