Scope and Content

File documents studies for temporary, moveable transportation exchanges. Three site-independent proposals are outlined for sea, land and air transportation: 'Dock Ahoy', a proposal for docks; 'Trucksafe', a truck park; and 'Air Portable', a limited-life airport. "The projects are concerned with finding flexible solutions to problems which occur when conditions change within a transportation network [...] the projects should be a further physical recognition of the value of short term toys." (Cedric Price, textual records). Preliminary design development drawings show plans for parking lot layouts for 'Air Portable'. Charts and graphs include aircraft and boat capacity studies, runway and cargo studies, and value/weight import graphs. Textual records contain correspondence regarding a possible exhibition of this material at the Walker Art Center in 1980. Some material from this file was published in 'Cedric Price-Works II' (London: Architectural Press, 1984), 18, 31.

File contains conceptual drawings, design development drawings, and textual records.
