For the third final round the jury narrowed the selection to four design schools: Hochschule Pforzheim (Germany), one of Europe’s leading schools; the College for Creative Studies in Detroit (US) which attracts students from all over the world because of the high standard of its facilities and teaching staff; the Asia-Pacific region’s top design school, Hongik University in Seoul (Korea), which had the largest number of entrants in the competition and also won the 2011 Ferrari World Design Contest; and, lastly, the ISD-Rubika in Valenciennes (France) which has a cutting-edge computer modeling course that embraces structured interdisciplinary projects.
The winner of the competition will be announced on January 15 2016. In the meantime, Ferrari has opened a public voting on Facebook, which will determine the winner of the “Premio Speciale” award.
The jury is composed by Ferrari exponents in the broadest sense of the term, including designers, engineers, drivers and even collectors. The list includes Nicola Boari, Franco Cimatti, Aldo Colonnetti, Rodolfo Gaffino Rossi, Jay Kay, Flavio Manzoni, Nick Mason, Andrea Militello, Marc Newson (TBC), Paolo Pininfarina and Sebastian Vettel.
