Multiplier Concept: a parking system on wheels

The Multiplier project is a study of a futuristic modular vehicle that can be combined with other identical models to build a two-level parking structure, increasing the available parking area. It was created by design student Julien Bilodeau.


The Multiplier is a project by Art Center College student Julien Bilodeau, who has created a temporary and expandable parking structure system, made of a network of identical trailer vehicles, which has the goal of increasing the available parking area.

Formally inspired to a "causality form language", the concept has a low-slung look, a forward leaning stance and visual expression of effort, similar to that of a strongman pulling a truck.
