Warmly welcomed when it saves lives or protects the planet, innovation also creates tension, even outright rejection, when it touches the living world, or when it digs too deeply into our private lives. What point is there if it doesn’t serve humanity, progress, the common good? Whether technical or social, can it help us live together more harmoniously and lead to a better quality of life in the city?
But what do we want to gain from it? Time? Space? Well-being? What do we really wish for? To get around more slowly or more quickly? Increase flows or better control them? Imagining the city of the future also means taking a look right now at what is being prepared for us, all over the world, in the laboratories of mobility and the city.
