Based on interviews with leading transport designers and architects and an international range of case studies, Moving Forward explores new design directions for transportation, from modern door-to-door journeys, to mass transit solutions and luxury vehicles, to future visions for space travel. New cutting-edge designs for planes, trains, subways, trams, bicycles, and automobiles are explored, as well as hybrid or cross-over vehicles like backpack bikes, mobile homes—even flying cars.
