Sustainable Vacation

Mobility: City of Short Distances

Investigating a Victorian-based vacation in the year 2032.

You (the design students) will be 23 years older. You will have careers, perhaps families, and your parents will be nearing retirement. In this studio, we accept that the effects of Climate Change, Peak Oil and Global economies will all be realities. Melbourne will have a population of 4 Million and work-life balance will have evolved. The biggest changing factor we will encounter is the absence of cars as personal and family transport. From this point, visualise and demonstrate the potential for travel transport and potential for a new type of holiday in Victoria. The scenario we consider is “leaving home in Roweville and travelling to a destination on the Great Ocean Road”.
