Topic: Peacetime Transport
Background: In an extremely unlikely, yet ideal future, there is no war. There is no large scale dissention between political parties, governments, or nations. There has been a significant paradigm shift which has lead to a cooperative global society focused on sustainable ecology.
New technology has enabled small scale duplication of raw materials through atom 'breeding' - meaning that many of the crises involving resource scares are no longer an issue, and production of material goods can continue as before.
In this secure peacetime, attentions are turned to quality of life. Within this is a greater appreciation by all people, of the power of beauty, and a greater understanding of aesthetics. This has led to a backwards shift in trends to older classical periods of decadence, decoration and art.
Brief:Your task is to design a vehicle of any kind (land, sea, air) for this new age. Technology is advanced, and so is an appreciation of classical design/art/methods. There is no need for any design to counterract aggression - the overwhelming majority of earths vehicles are now designed for luxury and pleasure.
To clarify, one example could be a car based on art deco. The period is roughly 50 years advanced - 2050 or so.
Have fun! Go nuts
Deadline: Once again, a fortnight is about right i think.15 June.
