4050 Slow Car, 2006


The campus is where the world of work is developing and the Slow Car is part of a series of rethought infrastructures that speculate about the way we make places to work. The Slow Car suggests mobility at the scale of the largest city, but not the scale of a country. The city is the Slow Car’s field of operation. As a result, it is liberated from aesthetic conventions that dramatize mobility. It is clearly free from aerodynamics, for example. It has another purpose. It is more like a small building, a shelter that allows us to experience public spaces at a much larger scale. A very fast office chair or a slow car.
