This immersive 3D sound experience presents three scenarios that prototype how cities might sound in the future as new technologies arrive in public spaces. How might journey-specific digital information enhance passengers’ experiences of transit? Will cities become quieter and calmer as street design, informed by sensor data, allows for greener spaces? Is the future of electric vehicles (EVs) necessarily a quiet one?
