    CCA+AIR (Audi Innovation Research) Fellowship: Beyond Mobility

    Audi AG's innovation research office in San Francisco has teamed up with CCA for a two week intensive workshop, an interdisciplinary collaboration geared towards exploring the car as a key intersection in a broader network of interconnected devices. Spearheaded on the AIR side by Markus Auerbach and on the CCA side by Jason Kelly Johnson and Nataly Gattegno of Future Cities Lab from the architecture department and Haakon Faste from the Interactive Design department, the workshop is running from June 6th to the 20th and has brought together students from the industrial design, interior design, graduate design, design MBA, and undergraduate and graduate architecture departments.

    We have begun to formulate a series of provocations about the future of the car and are exploring the potentials of data, customization, robotics, social networks, etc. to reinvent how we perceive the car among our many interconnected devices. After a couple days of field research out and about San Francisco our goal now is to hone in on and argue for a specific thesis about the future of cars within our groups of twos and threes. We will then move into next week with a clear agenda of how we may test, synthesize, mime, script, video record, and prototype our thesis proposals. It's gonna be an exciting couple of weeks!
