CHRIS BANGLE'S
AN ENDEAVOR IN DISCONTINUITY WORKSHOP

Exterior Car Design of the Future

Scuola Politecnica Di Design / Milan September 2010

The workshop reflects on the evolution of automotive design since the invention of cars and the influence of production processes and new materials on the outer shape of cars, Chris Bangle draws attention onto new and unexpected shapes that might be able to better interpret new social habits and gestures as a part of the new experimental concept.

Symmetry and continuity in surfacing is still a part of our car design legacy that Bangle challenges with revolutionary concepts such as discontinuity, irregular shapes and surfaces. In this workshop Bangle points out there may be many advantages to be discovered by abandoning ‘’surface continuity’’ paradigm in car design as well. According to Bangle’s vision, non continuity is a way to get future car designers to think outside of the restrictions of the ‘’business-english’’ shape dogmas of today.

CONTEXT

How to attach emotion - Emotional Energy

Replacing the surface without description of the surface
Topography of the surface that creates structural skin like a surface.
Technique where the structure influences the form
Spontaneous way- a random effect
Dissolve the surface that generates visual moments
Changing the symmetry - volume language defined by the space organization
Textural structure - zooming on texture and finding the form
Reshaping what defines a car - form and structure work together
Surface communicates with its internal function of different layers
