This Project was founded through the study and understanding of the parallel circumstances facing the automotive industry and architectural profession. Both fields are organized and structured in similar manners, and both share similar problems. Primary among them is the recent need to shift design focuses from viewing sustainable practices as necessary, a move unpopular among many designers and consumers because of the perception that with sustainable design comes a boring, unappealing design. This project will attempt to offer an architectural solution that through program (a design and research center for sustainable vehicles) and design, will challenge these stereotypes and blend the two fields together.
