General description

In these audio slideshows, artists, designers, architects and others present their creative output: works that were guided by some very specific ideas about mobility, or works that take us around the world. They describe the process that led to each one of them, from the initial concept to final production. Through their insights into their work, these creative minds help us gain a better understanding of their achievements and enhance our perception of mobility.
