Thinking about mobility and designing its vehicles demonstrates not only the design acumen of an architect, which could extend to various domains of design thinking, it is a lens into an architect’s broader scope for understanding and realizing spaces of inhabitation beyond the common architectural figure of the building. Vehicles of the land, sea, and air become mobile architectures that house users for the duration of transit between buildings and geographies. Similar to inhabiting buildings, users experience the environment/landscape as an outside through/with/from the inside of a vehicle’s enclosed space, albeit one moving across terrain. It is this inside-outside relation that this Research Methods workshop explored through an architectural/urban lens and using architectural analytical tools. Students followed non-humans, traced technical developments, and re-assembled the making of space (i.e., spatialisation) and habitat (i.e., inhabitation). They asked questions about mobility architectures, technogeographic milieu, and architectural associations.
