Live Course: Autonomous Vehicles and the Future of Cities

Register for this exclusive live course on autonomous vehicles happening September 25 at 3pm ET, featuring Melissa Ruhl and Will Baumgardner of Arup.


Vehicles have shaped streets and the neighborhoods, cities, and natural landscapes that have developed around them for decades. As we look to a future where cars, transit vehicles, and other types of vehicles drive themselves, what are the implications for the built environment and how architects plan and design projects.
