The studio focuses on future urban mobility that networks to provide universal publicly accessible transport between Melbourne and Sydney.
Rapid mass transit is a necessity for urbanised global communities, the Japanese Shinkansen, Shanghai Maglev trains and conceptual Hyperloop provide example sand potential future mobility. The project extends on concepts of Hyperloop vehicles developed and prototyped for the Elon Musk Project.
You will design and develop your concepts in a purely digital design practice with emphasis on digital modelling, visualisation and interactive communication to stakeholders. The studio will develop the external and interior arrangement of the vehicle, User experience, Seating and dining as well as vehicle stop interfaces.
The studio will use various CAD packages including Autodesk suite, Adobe suite, Rhino3d, Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) tools inside lo-fi mockups and develop your BYOD design practice, in order to prosper in an increasingly Digitised and trans-national practice.
