If California meets its targets, in the near future car ownership will no longer exist and a large pool of autonomous electric vehicles will require a new form of support infrastructure.

The project proposes structures which utilise the wasted space around major road interchanges to create architectural interventions which both create renewable energy to facilitate charging and maintaining the fleet.

The project looks at Los Angeles in the year 2040, where California has achieved its targets of being completely renewable and the department of transport have fully implemented driverless car technology.

The project takes a realistic view of the targets that they have set and speculates how architecture and the urban environment will have to change in order to cope with the new demand for renewable electricity.

The project proposes a new form of infrastructure for Los Angeles which will provide a centralised hub for the energy creation, charging and distribution for driverless cars.
