Hyperloop Suburb by Louise Braverman

Lately there’s a lot of talk about hyperloops, but few of these ideas seem to go beyond the infrastructure itself, asking how this unprecedented closing of distance will affect the way we live.

It’s because of this knowledge gap that architect Louise Braverman has unveiled a new research project at the Time Space Existence exhibition that explores the implications of the hyperloop for the often-overlooked suburbs.

In support of the project, a short video interview also elaborates on Braverman’s utopian and dynamic vision for the future suburb — suggesting that the hyperloop can step into the shoes of gas-guzzling cars, meaning greener and more resilient quasi-urban spaces.

Hyperloop Suburb is presented at Palazzo Bembo in Venice as a part of the Time Space Existence biennial exhibition.

The exhibition is free to attend and open daily (except Tuesdays) until November 25, 2018.

Hyperloop Suburb Design

Suburbs are typically thought of as dystopian, lonely places. But can hyperloop technology breathe new life into these liminal spaces? Architect Louise Braverman believes so, and has launched a speculative research-based exhibition exploring the ways in which the hyperloop can create new and dynamic modes of community and cultural life. A new short film examines the key ideas behind the exhibition and offers a speculative glimpse into the future of the suburb.

A hyperloop is a high-speed subterranean transport system capable of closing the distance between urban center and rural periphery. The implications of this for suburbs — where the majority of people in the United States call home — are enormous. Suburbs were once fueled by gas-guzzling cars, but in an age of impending climate change we are in need of greener and more resilient kinds of connectivity. Braverman’s research breaks the suburb out of its mid-century mold, providing a refreshed utopian vision of the future. How, she asks, do we want to live?

Braverman presents her research project, The Hyperloop Suburb, as part of the Time
Space Existence biennial exhibition in Venice, open until November 25 at Palazzo Bembo.
In the corresponding short film presented by PLANE—SITE, Louise Braverman narrates the historical research and design choices that inform the prototype presented in an experiential exhibition in Venice.

As Braverman herself puts it, The Hyperloop Suburb ”can provide a porous prototype to
develop aesthetically delightful, digitally driven, pluralist communities across a metropolitan and agrarian continuum.”
