ELECTRIC DREAMS | CAR DESIGN CENTER FOR TESLA MOTORS | VIENNA

die Angewandte | Studio Greg Lynn | with Bika Rebek | 2006

 

The project is a research and development center with an exhibition space for Tesla Motors. It provides an insight for the visitors into the car design process.The building is composed of two distinct volumes with different spatial qualities; they are permanently interweaving and interconnecting. The administrative spaces and design studios are inside the poche, because it has an intimate, closed character and the light conditions can be precisely controlled. The workshops are located outside of the poche in open, natural light-filled spaces. The public area crosses both the enclosed and transparent volumes, so it offers views in different light conditions of the cars to the visitors and they can experience both space types.
