Round the bend

Many architects have tried their hand at car design, including Zaha Hadid and Norman Foster. However, none of their proposals have been quite as radical, or bizarre, as Will Alsop’s self-named ‘Concertina Car’

Conceived last week during a panel event inspired by the launch of Ford’s latest people carrier, the B-Max, Alsop’s sketch (pictured) presents a light-hearted approach to space saving in the modern city. Featuring an expandable mid-section, the Concertina – not Cortina – is good at parking and easy to negotiate corners. But does anyone else see its similarity to London’s banished bendy buses?
