Royal College of Art Vehicle Design Show 2007
Eighteen students displayed the fruits of two years' labours at the RCA Vehicle Design Show 2007; in addition to cars, work this year included designs for helicopters, boats and concepts for animations.
The Vehicle Design course at the RCA pushes hard the issues surrounding transport in the future. Those studying the course are expected to consider "traffic jams, congestion-charging, parking restrictions, safety and environmental concerns" for both private and public transport. Students are also required "to develop an awareness of the range of issues that affect mobility including accessibility, aerodynamics, environmental impact, ergonomics, legislation, materials, production, safety and technology, as well as aesthetic principles".
