Themed with “City NEXT: Iteration of China’s Emerging Cities in New Era”, 2018 “BMW Next Mobility Youth Camp” is launched to explore innovative mobility conceptual designs on emerging cities with young talents, aiming to provide inspiration and reference for the urban regeneration and transformation towards future mobility.
Founded in 1996, Shenzhen High-tech Industry Park (SHIP) has promoted the agglomeration of high-tech enterprises and the advancement of technology. With the reform and opening up and the rapid development of China’s economy, a number of domestic industry leaders and even world-class enterprises have been spawned. However, with the continuous development of the SHIP, the constraint of inadequate transportation infrastructure began to appear. At the same time, with the emergence of novel mobility options such as Didi, Mobike, and on-demand buses, transportation infrastructure in the Southern District of SHIP can no longer meet the needs of the new mobility modes.
The purpose of this Camp is to explore how to promote the evolution of mobility in the built areas of emerging cities. With the trend of future mobility concepts and technologies, participants will devise innovative future mobility conceptual plans, applying the frontier technologies and ideas to improve the mobility conditions and efficiency of SHIP. The goal is to provide world-class enterprises in the SHIP with world-class mobility produces and services, and to help the area stay competitive globally in the future.
Conceptual plans of various types are accepted as deliverables, including mobility products and technology design, mobility-related business model development, and/or urban design that affects mobility choices. The target of the design can be either large or small. All conceptual plans shall be forward-thinking, and integrated with future mobility concepts and technology, and at the same time, take consideration of the current development of SHIP so that it is balanced with feasibility. The following are topics as reference.
- Demonstration and application of cutting–edge transportation technology
- A world-class image and world-class mobility solutions
- Detailed design and management
- Interdisciplinary approach, integrated design of transportation, architecture and landscape
