College Exhibition: Coventry University students prepare for the MA Design Degree ShowFri, 10 Sep 2004
The projects on show cover the full spectrum of vehicle concepts, with the show zoned into four themes: 'Move-Art', 'Move-Identity', 'Move-Current' and 'Move-Extreme'. Projects range from a luxury parading chariot inspired by Vivien Westwood fashion to an 8-legged arachnid-style vehicle for the year 2082. Other projects include a city vehicle influenced by the So-Be drinks brand, a new study of elegance and an advanced F1 amphibious hydrofoil race car. The course has a strong international presence, with students from USA, Japan, China, Uruguay, India and Spain among this year's graduates, which ensures a rich mix of culture within the projects on display.
The Coventry Masters programme, now in its twelfth year, is designed to appeal to former BA Design graduates who would like to further advance their skills or acquire new ones, especially in the use of Alias software and clay modelling. From this Autumn, the MA Automotive Design course will become a 15 month, 4 semester, course with a deeper emphasis on advanced concept thinking and computer-aided design.
Admission to the show is free and runs from Friday 17th September to Tuesday 5th October 10am-5pm daily, whilst the Private View is on Thursday 16th September 7-10pm, by invitation only.
