Cars: Accelerating the Modern World

Loading Events

Cars: Accelerating the Modern World explores how the car as a driving force has accelerated the pace of change over the past century, bringing together 15 diverse cars to tell extraordinary stories about design and the car’s impact on the broader world. These cars include the first production car in existence; an autonomous flying car; a converted low-rider; and a 1950s concept car.

As we stand at a new turning point in mobility design, this exhibition acts as a looking-back-to-look-forward – to understand our past blunders and achievements in order to better imagine how we want to move in the future.
