“The Audi brand stands for change and technical innovations. The courage to rethink and challenge the established is a decisive prerequisite for this continual advancement and the core of our corporate culture. We initiated the Audi Urban Future Award in order to identify and advance along paths leading towards a sustainable and responsible future.” Rupert Stadler, Chairman of the Board of Management AUDI AG
“The transformation of the city is a central theme for the future. Whereas the automobile has thus far shaped the appearance of cities, in the future it could be a city’s structure that determines which types of mobility are developed. The future is shaped on the one hand by architects, and by mobility providers on the other. With the Audi Urban Future Award, we want to bring both areas together and initiate a serious examination and discussion.” Christian Gärtner, Member of the Management Board, Stylepark AG
