Audi Urban Future Initiative in New York

Have you already visualized what will your place looks like twenty years from now? Well if you live at Manhattan, Audi was nice enough to put together a bunch of professionals to come up with a miniature model of the future Manhattan in year 2030.

This project is a collaboration between Audi Urban Future Initiative and the architecture community Architizer. Different architects, designers, artists and researchers have teamed up to come up with the ideas about the future of New York City. The result is a 1:1200 scale model of Manhattan that has been shown to the public though the New Museum in New York from May 4 to 8, 2011.

“With the Audi Urban Future Initiative we as a globally operating company are exercising social responsibility”, said Peter Schwarzenbauer, AUDI AG Board Member for Marketing and Sales. “In order to convert visions into reality more quickly, our experts are taking part in the debate about the city of the future. At the same time we are networking with experts from other disciplines – and in this way playing our part in shaping the urban future.”

Furthermore, Audi will be joining by five up-and-coming New York architecture practices which include LEONG LEONG, Matter Practice, Abruzzo Bodziak Architects, Peter Macapia/labDORA and Marc Fornes & THEVERYMANY, LLC. Each team will devote its attention to one district of the city, for example Lower Manhattan, Central Park West or Midtown East.
