Academy Races to Design with China Team

Students from the School of Industrial Design at Academy of Art University have a once in a lifetime opportunity to design the vessel for the Chinese national team’s 2016 America’s Cup. The China Team, which raced in the 2012 America’s Cup in San Francisco, has challenged Academy of Art University students to design the next generation of vessel concepts that the team will consider for the 2016 America’s Cup. “With China Team competing in the America’s Cup World Series here in San Francisco last week, our students had a unique opportunity to witness in person what they have a chance to impact with their design in 2016,” said Dr. Elisa Stephens, President of Academy of Art University. “This opportunity to design a world-class racing vessel for China Team is exactly the kind of experience we want our students to have before they graduate and we are grateful for this partnership with China Team.”
