‘I have written a fiction book about car design and the prologue takes place 25 years in the future,’ says Chris Bangle. ‘It contains some concepts I have been working on, and this contest is to see what you would make of them.’
One of the most influential and controversial car designers of our time, Bangle is asking design students to submit original illustrations based on his e-book Peter Teuful: A Tale of Car Design.
Bangle is critical about the current culture of car design and the book, a fictional tale based on A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens to be published in three parts on his site, reflects some of his concerns.
The international competition is open to students of all disciplines. The winner can either spend a week in Italy at Bangle’s design consultancy Chris Bangle Associates or pick up the €2000 prize.
Deadline is 30 March 2012. For more visit CBA.
