CrossMiles | Cosmogramme Workshop


MAA 02



By 2030, 43 megacities with more than 10 million inhabitants, and 2 billion cars will be on the road, triple today’s total. In 40% of the countries, transport is the largest energy consuming sector, contributing to 28% of greenhouse gas emission. Meeting growing aspirations for mobility in cities has the potential to improve the quality of life of billions of people — their living environment and health — and to help minimize the effects of climate change. 

In face of the transport-centric cities whose space and time were dominated by transportation, can architecture make cities more sustainable and livable by multipurpose mixed-use space?

Bringing the concept of life in 15-minutes from a neighborhood scale to building scale, CrossMiles is a multi-functional building that adopts transit oriented development for vertical space making, aiming to improve the quality of life of metropolitan residents by reducing their vehicular movements.
