12:grn:hrs - design a green car in a day!
Friday, September 23, 2011 from 8:30 AM to 8:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
What if we took professional car designers put them in a room with people from ‘the public’ and gave them 12 hours to come up with a green car design?
12:grn:hrs - design a green car in a day! is a one day event organised by Green Car Design during the London Design Festival 2011. The aim of the event is to create an opportunity for an intense day of design and eco brainstorming to create a truly unique green car design concept.
(1 professional car designer + 5 'public' creators)
5 eco motivators
12 green hours!
Format - the event is designed to allow for maximum creativity packed into a short space of time. The time constraint can focus creators on essential and important elements that are paramount to good eco design. Carefully selected suppliers, not necessarily automotive, will initiate the process with a presentation of their products in the morning to stimulate thought. Then teams will be created given random parameters and proceed to design a green car in a day.
Keynote Speech - Kenny Schachter - art curator and car nut!
Our Professional Car Designers -

• Giovanni Piccardo - ex-Pininfarina
Our Eco Motivators -

Schedule - the schedule is tight and packed for good reason. Under pressure people work in a different way. They often forget preconceptions, are willing to try new ideas, and even come up with new ones! Not only is time restricted but materials and internet use will also be limited for each team. With this less is more approach designs and concepts flourish in a more unexpected way leading to ecologically innovative results.

9.30 am - Eco Motivators Present

An interview session will be running throughout the day to capture the view of motivators and creators and the event will be featured on our website and other car and design magazines. Take up the challenge now and become a green car creator!
