At this critical moment for American infrastructure, LIFE AT THE SPEED OF RAIL calls for participants to produce projects and scenarios that imagine the impacts of high-speed rail at all scales — architectural, metropolitan, regional, national. We invite architects to imagine new rail modes, new infrastructures, new cities and social spaces. We want landscape architects to picture rail paradigms that embrace topography, ecology or sustainability. Urban planners, convince us that high-speed rail will rejuvenate your downtown or launch a new sub-suburban geography. Graphic, product or interactive media designers, filmmakers, and artists can also contribute by using their respective art forms to tell the story infrastructure's impact.
