When the parked car becomes awake.

Abstract

A sharing car that purifies polluted air when it’s parked.

Sharing-car - Sharing environment.
This project aims to promote car-sharing in an effort to reduce car-ownership in the city that is often reffered to as the
capital of traffic jams: Beijing. Since sharing-cars will always be parked in near reach of pedestrians, often in town squares and main streets, this secondary function would help to make public spaces a nicer place to be. An air-purifying exterior element on the car will improve the air quality locally, but this function would also serve as a communicator to show the positive enviromental effects of carsharing, not just for the user but for everyone. This could turn peoples negative associations with vehicles into something positive and hopefully open peoples eyes up towards this new mobility called car sharing.
