Hodgetts + Fung Board the Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Design Team

Renowned architects Hodgetts + Fung look to the future by adding their experience in transportation design as official architects of the JumpStartFund’s Hyperloop Transportation Technologies track and station scheduled to begin construction in 2016


CULVER CITY, Calif. Sep 25, 2015 -- Known for innovative projects and the design of world renowned facilities like the new Hollywood Bowl, architects Craig Hodgetts and Hsinming Fung announced their addition to the growing list of the Hyperloop Transportation Technologies team. In designing a test track station for the projected new community of Quay Valley, Craig and Ming will be working with land planners, entertainment providers and local authorities to create an entirely unprecedented transportation experience.

“As architects we’ve always looked to the future,” says Craig. “We are looking forward to being part of the team and working on a truly remarkable innovation in transportation and design.” 

Hodgetts + Fung’s experience in transportation design with hybrid mentality has been a passion since the 1960s, when Craig was an automotive engineer, and envisioned the Landliner, a high-speed solution to urban congestion for the Bos-Wash corridor, which became a cover story on New York Magazine.

“Craig has been instrumental in advancing the Hyperloop project,” said JumpStartFund and Hyperloop Transportation Technologies CEO Dirk Ahlborn. “The addition of Ms. Fung and the rest of his talent at their world-famous firm are most welcome additions to our growing roster of impressive team members.”

In August 2015, JumpStartFund’s Hyperloop Transportation Technologies announced that 400 team members were currently engaged in the project, including professionals at Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum, inventors of vacuum technology, and AECOM, the world’s largest construction engineering firm. Originally envisioned by Elon Musk, Hyperloop is a revolutionary transit system that would transport passengers and cargo between cities at 760 miles an hour. The Quay Valley test track will be built on a five-mile stretch between Los Angeles and San Francisco, beginning in 2016.
