In the city, it is hard sometimes to get a sence of distance, as areas can become so compact. This project explores the ideal of distance , it looks at the many benches in public space which instead of the idyllic view of some distant land you get a traffic jam of Kingsland Road. That for the city its landscape is the car.

But in reality cars in the city move slow and in large groups. What if cars could be designed with this in mind.
