Interchanging: Future designs for responsive transport environments

As part of Sydney Design 2014 at Customs House, UNSW Built Environment presents Interchanging: Future designs for responsive transport environments

See what public transport will look like as it’s transformed by digital technologies. Get hands-on with a 1:1 scale, interactive mock-up of a public transport Interchange of the Future. Featuring two large screens and several sensors you’ll be able to interact with the model and experience a new world of travel and commuting.

Using sustainable materials, and solar energy, the Interchange of the Future incorporates the 2030 vision of the City of Sydney as a green, global and connected city. The installation is complemented by an exhibition showcasing outcomes and the making of the Interchange installation. It takes in 21st Century digital technologies, as well as aspects of 21st Century urban life, such as social networking, online shopping, multimodal travel, recycling, active lifestyles and sustainability.

Produced by Encircle, an ARC funded transdisciplinary research team, led by the University of New South Wales (UNSW), together with the University of Sydney, and the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), and industry partners – Transport for NSW, City of Sydney, ARUP engineering and Grimshaw architects.
