POP CULTURE CAN SPAWN GREAT DESIGN

  • Comment
LETTERS

I am writing in response to a reference in the AJ (AJ 26.04.07) to a design by year-out student Gregg Bowler at Stubbs Rich Architects.

The accompanying image showed a UFO-like object which appears to contain a car for client Arash Sports Cars.

In my youth I was a fan of the movie Flight of the Navigator. The film featured a remarkable metallic, organic spaceship which reconfigured itself into this particular shape at high speeds.

I am currently studying for a MArch at the University of Kent at Canterbury. For my research project I am studying the use of computer-game technology for architectural representation and am glad to discover that other designers are using pop-cultural references to inspire cutting-edge design.
