Alain Brideson - future urban transport

From Standing Room Only, 2:26 pm on 24 July 2016

Like many kiwi kids, Alain Brideson loved drawing cars...unlike most, he's gone on to work on car design including prototypes for electric vehicles. He's returned home after studying industrial design and applying those skills for more than a decade in Europe and Asia, working on projects ranging from ski-grips to show cars. At the moment, he's teaching design at AUT and working on a design to help eye surgeons. Alain's one of the guest speakers at the Semi-Permanent 2016 gathering of local and international creative and business leaders. Lynn Freeman talks to him about the Future of Urban transportation and what Auckland's transport landscape might look like in the future.
