UNStudio to Host Webinar Series on Future of Mobility

As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to disrupt life as we knew it, UNStudio is hosting a two-part webinar series exploring one of the pillars hardest hit by the Covid-19 pandemic: mobility.

UNStudio’s two-part webinar series on the future of mobility will kick-off on Tuesday with an online panel discussion dedicated to airports and the future of long-distance transport.

While daily operations continue with new safety measures in place, the bigger picture of capital investment remains murky. Our webinar will explore how the reverberating shocks of COVID-19 will affect major intermodal hubs in the future.

The guest speakers will be Astrid Piber, UNStudio Partner and Senior Architect, Eli Konvitz, Director of Planning and Urban Design at Atkins, Hannah Jeong, Head of Valuation & Advisory Services for Colliers International Hong Kong, and Karl Lyndon, Partner and Global Aviation Sector Director for Buro Happold.

The second event will take place on November 24, and will focus on cable cars, rail stations and hyperloop hubs, with guest speakers to be announced soon.

It will explore how we might reconsider the role of transport hubs – from train stations to cable cars, amongst others – in ensuring the future resilience of our cities.
