Since 1978 IAAD’s Transportation Design Department has been training designers, dreamers and visionaries, alongside some of the names that have written the history of automotive field. Today this course is considered among the best at the international level, and the city of Turin – as widely known – has always had a very strong automotive vocation as the home of Fiat, Lancia and Alfa Romeo, as well as of the unmistakable lines and shapes created by automotive design firms like Giugiaro, Bertone and Pininfarina.
This combination of factors means that the Transportation Design Department is the perfect context in which to train the experienced professionals sought by leading car manufacturers: people capable, through their innovative ideas, of creating new horizons for the future of four-wheeled transportation.
IAAD’s Academic Diploma in Transportation Design deals with the study and design of all means of transport, as well as integrated and sustainable mobility systems. This educational path trains professionals prepared to face the future with curiosity, it gives space to their visions and offers effective, incisive tools in order to face up to reality, dealing with all aspects of design and the analysis of societal and technological change, all without neglecting the “human-centric” approach that brings the final product together with consumers.
In order to celebrate in the best way its 40th anniversary, IAAD – the Italian University for Design has decided to launch a contest focusing on the reinterpretation of an iconic vehicle that has written more than a page in the history of the automotive sector: the Porsche 928.
Forty years ago in Stuttgart a legend was born, the new Porsche 928. An innovative and captivating vehicle, ready to replace its older sister, the timeless Porsche 911.
With the 928, Porsche did not simply want to redefine the style of the traditional sports car, but sought to concentrate its resources on technological innovation. Its answer was a light and resistant vehicle capable of exploiting the mechanical and aesthetic properties of plastic and aluminum; a modern coupé able to surprise and divide the lovers of this brand, an icon that even today, after 40 years, conquers the hearts of fans.
We’re curious to know your vision of the legendary 928, we’d like to see a restyling that respects the values of the Porsche brand and that pays tribute to the original model, taking a myth of the past into the near future.
