At AutoMobility LA, Gerry Tierney, Associate Principal at Perkins+Will San Francisco, will moderate a discussion with urban design experts including Jeff Tumlin, Principal and Director of Strategy at Nelson\Nygaard.

Tierney and Tumlin will discuss “2050: City of the Autonomous Car” at 3 p.m. on Tuesday, November 15. They will explore:

  • How urbanists can plan today for a tomorrow when fewer cars are needed
  • Why on-demand autonomous vehicles could transform cities and how people move
  • What cities could do with excess parking lots, garages, and roadways

The inaugural AutoMobility LA, formerly a showcase of new car models, now converges the tech and automotive industries to launch new products and discuss the future of mobility. The four-day event at the LA Convention Center features vehicle debuts, a design and developer challenge, and an auto-tech focused expo floor. The event represents the intersection of big ideas and big energy, and for the first time the 2016 design competition brings programmers and non-automotive companies into the auto-innovation mix.
