    #10 Lessons from Epic Architectural Projects

    You may have seen some animated videos about city projects and thought, ‘that looks like science fiction, and perhaps even laughed at the scale or absurdity of the project’. ‘The Line’ in Saudi Arabia is a recent example aiming for zero emissions, low carbon, and being car-free. But what can cities learn from these projects? In this 15-minute episode, mobility expert Augustin Friedel shares how cities can benefit from the experience, knowledge and thinking of these aspirational projects.

    Many thanks to Augustin for sharing his insights, feel free to follow him on LinkedIn for up-to-date insights about the industry.

    Many thanks to Francesco Cusimano and Stefanie Journel (Fifteen) for taking the time to talk to me about the exciting project at Fifteen that the company can’t stop talking about.
