Welcome to Audi City
We are excited to announce the launch of Audi City, a new venture that uses technology to create space in the city centre. With over 50% of the world’s population living in urban areas, the city is becoming the prevalent framework for human living. Using state-of-the-art equipment, Audi City bridges real space with virtual space expanding possibilities. This blog is focused on this ethos. Here we share fascinating projects from around the world which transform human interaction with space. From artists who are interested in the experience of the body in the environment to ingenious technologies that present new possibilities for living, to reflections on the future of mobility.

For five days in Mayfair, London, Audi City revealed a site-specific installation of Chris Cunningham’s latest work. Tickets were given out on our Twitter @audicity.
Always driven forward by its ethos of Vorsprung durch Technik, Audi collaborated with award winning filmmaker and artist Chris Cunningham. The work is the first in a series of multi-media works that mix complex live performance, music, robotics and sculpture. Enormous industrial robots veer around one another in a mysterious room. Their motors are syncopated with the room’s metronome and they embark on a frenetic interchange over a mechanical ‘brain’.
