concept interior for an autonomous vehicle



This project was completed as a three-week rigorous transportation studio with the task of creating a form that connotes a specific part of a vehicle. Experimental photography, sketches complemented by 3D modeling, and physical iterations were the techniques used to study the abstract relationship between form, vehicular elements, and the effects that their interplay have on a user.  The broad intent was to create a concept interior that catered to disabled users by incorporating cross sections that moved back and forth to adapt to their movement.  It is interpreted to be placed inside of an autonomous exterior.
