Abstract [en]

The city landscape of China is undoubtedly experiencing rapid transformation. With the fast rate of urbanization it seems plausible that people will live in a vertical city served by new kinds of transportation infrastructure around the year 2050.

This project studied the values of the upper middle class of migrants living in a future Shanghai. Ideation and form development resulted in an aesthetic sculpture informed by the western brand and the eastern culture. This sculpture then inspired the development of a vehicle concept that can act as mobility solution as well as an icon of quality living in the future Chinese home.
