Paris without cars

Our mission is to bring the roads of Paris to life by creating a more dynamic, efficient, and adaptive method of transportation for Parisians. Inspired by the biological processes in the circulatory system, we propose dynamic bicycle lanes that adapt to traffic conditions throughout Paris.
These dynamic lanes, implemented with lights installed in the road and movable bollards, will make bicycle transportation more convenient, effective, and safe for cyclists and drivers. In this way, the impending shift away from car transportation will be less of an inconvenience for Parisians and more of an evolutionary process.
Increasing bike usage won't only reduce congestion. In the process, Paris will become a more environmentally sustainable and socially connected city.
