Another project that’s been knocking me out these past few weeks is “Wish You Were Here! Postcards from our Awesome Future,” by Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings. A brief description:
Packard Jennings and Steve Lambert asked architects, city planners, and transportation engineers, “what would you do if you didn’t have to worry about budgets, bureaucracy, politics, or physics?” Ideas from these conversations were then merged, developed, and perhaps mildly exaggerated by Steve and Packard to create a series of 6 posters for the San Francisco Arts Commission’s Art on Market Street Program.
These posters are actually now on display at bus kiosks down along Market Street in San Francisco. A little bit of urban speculation on your way to work.

I love these things! Every city should do this. And they should hire Steve Lambert and Packard Jennings, because their illustrations are ace.
Seriously, every city should do this: Produce visions of your city in the future, then pin them up at bus shelters. That’s how SCI-Arc and The Bartlett should start exhibiting student work.
Be sure to check out the whole Flickr set, which includes documentation of the posters in situ.
(With huge thanks to both Ross Perlin and Steve Lambert for pointing these out!)
