This research project is a collaboration between LKDN and a car designer from South Korea Eunji Choi.
The idea of this project to merge architecture and transportation design in a large scale vehicle for multifunctional events such as private parties, fashion shooting, advertisement filming, and many other small scale events. The project is a response to a global pandemic disaster where people are locked at their homes and cannot enjoy their life anymore. That is why this vehicle is a response to this problem and other global problems such as air pollution and industrial waste recycling.
It will not only be zero carbon emission vehicle but also it will be purifying polluted air around it while it is on the move. The shell of the vehicle will be partly covered by green algae pods integrated into the shell to play a role of generating clean air and energy for the vehicle. Also, the materials used for this vehicle will be 100% sustainable using composite recycled materials.
The vehicle also considers such transportation design problem like accessibility by disabled people. We tackled this problem by designing this vehicle to be accessible by people on wheelchairs and not only access the car but also being able to go to the second level of the car by lift.
It will have a double deck and people who want to have a more private zone can go to the second level to enjoy a more relaxed atmosphere.
The formal design language is inspired by a Mobius loop and Klein Bottle found by mathematicians. The outer shell of vehicle is merging with interior and some surfaces twist from outside inwards forming uninterrupted flow of curves and surfaces.
The vehicle will be driverless and electric responding to the most advanced developments in technology of transportation design.
This car is our manifest and response to our planet’s global problems including societal and ecologic problems.
