High Fashion Train Interior


Of all of the pioneering industrial designers, including Norman Bel Geddes, Walter Dorwin Teague, and Henry Dreyfuss, Raymond Loewy is by far most well-known to the American public. His designs for the original Coca-Cola contour bottle and logo, the Exxon logo, and the Avanti car are icons of 1950s and 1960s design.

Why Design Now?: AGV (automotrice á grande vitesse) [high-speed self-propelled train]


Why? Trains are among the most sustainable forms of transportation, and the AGV is at the forefront of high-speed, energy-efficient train design. Ninety-eight percent of the train is built from recyclable materials, its traction systems and low weight are energy-efficient, and its permanent-magnet synchronous motors and regenerative braking system create electricity and minimize energy loss.

Cooper-Hewitt: Food and Transportation: New Systems Approaches to Transforming Cities Sustainably


By the year 2050, about 80% of the earth's population will reside in urban centers with much less space and resources available to support the current personal automobile, sprawl, and highway infrastructure-focused transportation paradigm. Speakers Dickson Despommier, Dan Albert and Sue Zielinski will present their visions for the future of cities that include models for vertical farming and transportation alternatives.
