Volkswagen Viseo Concept

The Volkswagen Viseo is a futuristic concept vehicle created by Marc Kirsch for his final project in Industrial Design at Braunschweig University of Arts.


For his Viseo concept Marc Kirsch was inspired by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava‘s work. As he explains, "the target was to create a visionary concept car, shaped and based on the calatravian motto of “dynamic balance”. I was very much inspired by his main conceptional and visual influence."

"The popular shapes used by Calatrava were to be recognized in the design of the automobile and should be easily connected to his work."
