Exterior Renders

A big jump from the sketches but here is the final developed alias model renderings. Renault was an obvious choice for the F1 and Rally racing heritage as well as their "liquid" surfacing.

Bio Mechanical Interface

An adaptive seating exploration that utilizes micro-robotic actuators to conform the seat shape to the driver as well as "react" during an accident to reduce the inertial forces on the driver/passenger.

Bio-Mechanical Interface

This series of sketches explores combining the benefits of a highly-customizable, holographic interface with the solid, mechanical, feedback of a classic button.

Sketch Renderings: Interior/Exterior

Here are a couple of sketches exploring the connection of the interior and exterior of a single-seat, open-top, roadster. This concept is being continually developed and is intended to explore new levels of human-machine interface without being bound solely by today's technology.

Sketch Rendering: Bugatti type 50

Took a quick break from sketching interiors to sketch one of my favorite classics.

Sketch Renderings: Interior Paintings

Some more expressive explorations of form, color, and material.

Sketch Renderings: Interiors

Quick and loose explorations of form with some indications of materials.

More miscellaneous interior sketches for today.

Misc interior ideation sketches. These are very conceptual and done in anticipation for a new interior design project (no project brief yet).

A quick, gestural, interior exploration using abstract shading (no project association).

Interior Function and Details

The first sketch in this pair shows an added benefit to a yoke style steering. Since the user's hands are always resting in one place, control buttons can be added to the top surface and easily accessed by their thumbs, at any given time. The second sketch shows the thought process behind functions such as armrests and storage compartments.

Full-Scale Interior Mock-up

Constructed of plywood and Foam Core, this full-scale mock-up was built to explore the ergonomics, proportions, ingress/egress, etc, for the passengers of this interior. It was built to hold the weight of the passengers so that the design could be properly studied and developed. This collage of images shows some of the functional parts of the interior such as the fold-up seat pans and the slide out I.P. and pedal assembly. Additional functions and details were included in the renderings and sketches.

Here is the final direction for the Breitling interior. This rendering is a translation of the keywords directing this design: Precision, Mechanical Elegance, and Control. 'Precision' describes the Philosophy behind Breitling, 'Mechanical Elegance' describes the aesthetic of Breitling, and 'Control' descibes the functionality and user interface of a Breitling watch.

Breitling interior

Here is a page of ideation sketches for the interior of the Breitling car. The vehicle has a front entry which presents some design challenges for ingress/egress around the instrument panel. Full renderings and project info to follow.

Breitling by Bently rendering

Here is the full front view rendering of the Breitling. I chose this perspective and rendering style to best describe the form of the car and show off some of the unique design elements.

I have found that I tend to take a break from assigned sketching by sketching vehicles with no association to my current projects. These pages are just a few of those accumulated sketches from this semester.

Mercedes SLS AMG renderings. Started with a marker sketch-rendering and developed digitally into the color and monochromatic versions.

Bugatti Ettore Coupe

A front engine coupe designed to fit the gap in Bugatti's current lineup between the mid-engine supercar (Veyron) and the four-door sedan (16c Galibier). Inspired by some of Ettore Bugatti's most sucessful designs: type 35, type 41 Royale, type 50, the type 57 Altlantic.

These renderings represent the first iteration of the design. Over the course of this semester, this design will be refined in sketches and developed into a 1/5th scale clay model.
