I am a conceptual designer who graduated cum laude from the Design Academy Eindhoven. During my studies I have deliberately chosen to immerse myself into various disciplines. All my projects are diverse in terms of subject but connected by the same urge, innovation. This desire is present on both conceptual and visual level.

How will our living environment evolve when parking space gradually becomes vacant?
Future modes of transport will inevitably force us to repurpose the space occupied by cars nowadays.
File under

Through history, architecture has always been influenced by mobility. Since public and private transport are on the verge of disruption, it is time to envision how this will redraw the world we live in. It is estimated that self driving modules can reduce all existing vehicles by us much as 90%. Since roads and parking space account for 30%-60% of the surface of our cities, this development will have drastic consequences for our immediate living environment and architecture in general. Over time, the public and private space occupied by cars will gradually become vacant. It’s only a matter of time till roads, parking lots, and garages will have to be repurposed. This evolution gives us the opportunity to return non functional space back to the city. My project explores 3 possible scenario’s, ranging from stacked farms to inner city nature and mass indoor sports facilities. It shows a conceptual picture of our possible urban future and raises questions we inevitable will be faced with.

inner city street and parking space - replaced by inner city nature
