[…] I made a proposal that works with concepts such as community, multiplication and mutual attraction, inspired by the microcosm where some basic elements of substance can interact with each other."

Connect has the goal of letting its passengers experience a "public transportation in a private space". The concept was presented at L’argus 8th Design Competition, where it placed fourth.
