The Next American System
[OP-ED] Journey to Detroit

The Blueprint America team collaborated with transportation group America 2050 to create those sequences. America 2050’s take on the animation kicks off the group’s “A Better Tomorrow” project, an effort to visualize the future of a variety of American communities and transportation systems.
