MA work

People travelling through the urban city, which always has two sides - cities produce both pleasant views and loud traffic noise. A new type of high end vehicle should function as a filter to produce a comfortable space within complicated situation.

I call my design ‘Oasis’ because it is the vehicle that allows passengers to stay away from the city’s traffic aspect, and to see the city through a pedestrian viewpoint. It conveys a new attitude for luxury buyers, as the asymmetrically defined space invites people in instead of shutting out the world. Inspired by the flying bullet (tension gets released through the air trace), the car body is abstracted into a pure sculpture, which delivers a higher level of elegance.
