Royal College of Arts – Graduation Show 2011

We at FACADE are always amused with this particular department at the RCA
as they always come up with brilliant ideas in the field of vehicle design.

Vehicle Design at the RCA aims to harness, encourage and extend students’ skills and processes.
It seeks innovation with practicality, merging experience and practice to creative thinking,
and blending teaching and learning seamlessly in a climate of informed opinion, supported by in-depth research,
creative cross-disciplinary experience, teamwork and academic excellence.
Unexpected challenges and unusual viewpoints, sparkling creativity and supplying critical analysis are offered.
Above all the RCA empower individual expression, seek innovation solutions and demand aesthetic excellence through design.

Vehicle Design is a complex subject, concerned with aerodynamics, environmental impact, ergonomics, legislation, materials, production, safety and technology.
This department of the RCA seeks to pioneer new design, innovation and new approaches for our mobile futures.
Three Pathways help to define and focus the work through Urban Flow, Auto-mark and Inside-out.
The graduates presenting here are not only the future of the discipline, they are defining it.
The work represents their aspirations.
