| Reflections on the Autostadt in Wolfsburg by leading figures in art and culture

How do we envision life on earth? Over half of the world’s population lives in cities. The future of these urban centers depends on questions of mobility. In a search for answers, the authors and artists invited to contribute to this book have explored what the Auto­stadt in Wolfsburg has to offer, while walking through the various cultural themes presented within this twenty-eight-hectar landscape park. The result is a collection of thoughtful and fresh perspectives on one of the largest distribution and pickup centers for new cars, which attracts two million visitors a year. Christian Boros, Douglas Coupland, Li Wie, and Sascha Lobo reflect on their personal experiences of navigat­ing the park. Readers can see the Autostadt through an inner monologue on the park and its art, the story of its amazing, brief history, a fantastical short story, a car ride into the future, or a trip into a surreal realm?and find inspiration for innovative answers to the questions of our time.
