Toyota announces plans for the “Woven City”, a high-tech hydrogen-powered community of the future

January 9, 2020 |

In California, the Toyota motor corp revealed plans to build a prototype “city” of the future neat Mt. Fuji, Japan, where it will be a fully connected ecosystem powered by hydrogen fuel cells. Named the “Woven City,” the community will act as a “living laboratory” where the space will serve as a home to full-time residents and researchers who will be able to test and develop technologies such as autonomy, robotics, personal mobility, smart homes, and artificial intelligence. The city’s buildings will be made of mostly wood, where traditional Japanese wood joinery will be combined with robotic production methods. The city will be designed by famed Danish Architect Bjarke Ingels, who has had previous projects such as the World Trade Center and Google’s Mountain View and London headquarters.
