suckerPUNCH: describe your project.
valmik VYAS / william tyler ZEMBRODT: Studio Supercharged served as an attempt to prototype for the approaching zero emission era. Currently, the fabric of today`s metropolis is covered with urban dirt –architecture utilized only for its ability to hide and seclude the car.
In the design of the first Electric Vehicle Hub in NYC, it was our goal to create an expressive, compelling, and innovative design; one that could supplement the city`s needs and desires. By providing an opportunity for the public to interact with –and further understand –these new technologies (of fabrication, branding, wind collection, automotive design, etc) Shifting Turblence works toward the goal of a zero emissions future by fostering the growing popularity of electrical vehicles.
