Kinetower


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: This is one of the most interesting building concepts I’ve seen in a while. The Kinetower’s exterior window elements respond to sunlight or user control much in the same way a flower blooms in the morning, transforming it’s hard facade into a softer and almost unrecognizable version of it’s former self. The metamorphosis is made possible by the use of material that is rigid when taut but flexible enough to bend. This is dynamic design at it’s best.

Roca London Gallery


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: Zaha Hadid Architect and Roca announce the opening of the Roca London Gallery – a design inspired by the power of water as a transforming element to carve a sequence of dynamic, porous spaces for the gallery. Fissures and slices in the walls give permeability consistently throughout the gallery. The design theme of water extends to the facade, which appears as a set of ripples in movement across the exterior.

Koenigsegg Prestera


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The Koenigsegg Prestera was designed with one purpose in mind… thrills! Inspired by extreme sports, the vehicle triggers the driver’s adrenaline with a dynamic carving and shifting weight balance system that creates stability in turns and exhilaration in the driver’s seat. Tucked in the cockpit, the driving experience is closer to that of riding a motorcycle or even a horse. This creates a deep connection between driver and machine where even the smallest movements are shared.

The Prestera enhances the private vehicle experience with intuition based operation that uses natural motions of mobility while giving the vehicle a mutual role of control. This allows the driver to experience deeper sensations without risk of accident.

Sustainable efficiency utilizes a renewable energy source that with photovoltaics continuously recharge compressed air for the pneumatic rotor engine while low friction vehicle dynamics increase efficiency. Frictionless air bearings, magnetic levitation wheels and a carbon fibre spaceframe chassis wrapped in a active ferromagnetic silicone skin support a radical and active vehicle architecture.

The vehicle architecture actively adapts to different situations, applying different technological principles for each mode. With this versatility, Prestera trials innovation that trickles down in common vehicles over time.

LaMaserati


Rate This Concept Now!

Overview: The Maserati “LaMaserati” is a concept flagship hyper car based around the LaFerrari platform. Utilizing the same V12 engine (but retuned with the KERS system removed to save weight), LaMaserati is designed to be the purest expression of the brand’s core values: elegant styling, striking presence and performance finesse.

The concept is built around the LaFerrari hyper car much in the same way the Maserati MC12 was built around the Ferrari Enzo. The smooth curves, sweeping windscreen and aggressive front fascia along with the classic blue and white color scheme tie LaMaserati aesthetically to the brand’s range and the company’s heritage. The airflow inspired bodywork is designed with a focus on smooth, unbroken lines and fluid surfaces that wrap around the wheels to create a contemporary and dynamic aesthetic.

With LaFerrari’s KERS system removed to save weight and the Ferrari 6.3l V12 retuned to compensate for the loss of power and torque, LaMaserati is geared more to the sensation of driving than the final performance figures. Lightness, handling and a more analogue driving feel take priority over power and overall speed.
