    Cycopaths: The Future of Urban Mobility

    Royal College of Art
    Monday 31 Oct to Friday 4 Nov

    As recipients of the 2016 Fellowship in the Built Environment awarded by the Royal Commission for the Exhibition of 1851 – DSDHA's Ellen, Tom, Astrid and Roberta will be running a workshop at the RCA to map the beautiful everyday journeys across London.  

    Taking the bicycle as a primary vehicle for investigation, their workshop will consider alternatives to the narrative of ‘speed/efficiency’ that is currently regulating London’s transport system, and deeply investigate how the way we move affects our experience of space. To this end, with the students, they will map the visual, psychological and sensorial experience of London’s cyclists, analysing their movement in relationship with notions of ‘beauty’ and ‘pleasure’. 

    The research methodology will draw inspiration from previous experiments carried out in the 70s, which analysed the impact of the altered perception of space allowed by the car on the perception and production of architecture.
