Transcript of Mobilities

MOBILITIES
by Urry (according to neysha)
TOURISM
TRANSPORTATION
sustainability
MOVEMENT
economic
data about how transportation systems are dealing with ecological issues
how much is being spent in transportation infrastructure by governments and how much is the citizen spending as a user of these systems
what kind? eco, urban, leisure?
places to play, places in play
cultural diversity that comes with it
boundaries between locals and tourist become blurred?
SITE/LESS(NESS)
architecture "on the move"
VIRTUAL
not interested in the materiality of the virtual
more about the process of information travel
can't handle philosophical aspect of it
DIAGRAM/MAPPING
freedom
mobility as a commodity improving social and personal relations
technology
how does technology facilitate the movement of information and MESSAGES from one point to another
infrastructure
analysis of typological transportation infrastructure
history
modes of transportation through the years
illegal
illegal inmigration and smuggling
speed
speed of systems has made it possible to rtavel faster and farther
anti-activity
anti-activities and dwelling-in-motion:
activities that take place in the path from one place to another
image
how to use an image to promote a place, make it desirable to visit
why go there instead of looking at it in google maps
"THIS WILL KILL THAT"
MOTHER EARTH / MOTHER BOARD
made me realize that I'm not interested in the materiality of it
maybe more on the phylosiphical aspect (but don't know if I can handle it. I was more interested in the anecdotes than in the technical descriptions
later phase
idea of mapping left for the design phase
program generator
use the diagrams obtained to generate a program and not a shape
OPTIONS
station
complement to station
moveable building
DESIGN PHASE
RESEARCH REPETITION
RESEARCH GREEN TECHNOLOGIES OF MOVEMENT (WAVES GENERATOR)
shape as frozen forces
result of movement and tourism
if there is constant movement then there cannot be a stable site
tourism mobilities: places to play, places in play
essays about how different activities take place in tourism centers
how they work and why have they become tourist centers?
BARCELONA - DUBAI - VENICE
mobilities
mobilities, networks, geographies
the space you are "in" while you move
time is not necessarily "dead"
shopping - eating - relaxing - chat/messaging - watching
GENERAL
clarify what architecture is in the realm of your interests and defend the role of your design project
is the building your goal or vehicle? starting at both ends
prove that you are capable of designing a building, but also having a position and argument about architecture
an argument in search of a building, instead of a building searching for an argument
what table do you want to sit at? what kind of thesis is it?
FINAL CONTENTION
pleasures and pains of travelling
REQUIREMENTS
focused bibliography w annotations (why is it helpful for your thesis)
a thesis statement in the form of an argument on what you see the role of architecture and design playing in your topic area
tentative area of research methodology (how do you imagine conducting kind of research you wish to be relevant

LA JIRAFA
specific ecological and traveller number data
4 TYPES OF MOBILITY ACCORDING TO URRY
/1 something that moves or that is capable of movement. characteristics of things and people
/2 a mob, because of its capacity to move it needs regulation
/3 vertical movement through hierarchy of status in society
/4 broad sense of migration and geographical movement (tourism)
interested in:
/1 something that moves or that is capable of movement.
characteristics of things and people
AND
/4 broad sense of migration and geographical movement (tourism)
METHODOLOGY FOR RESEARCH
THEORETICAL looking for definitiosn of TOURISM AND MOBILITIES
HISTORY of different transportation systems
CASE STUDIES of transportation hubs
