Academy’s Executive Director Crowns LA Auto Show Design Challenge Winner
For this year’s L.A. Auto Show
Design Challenge, designers were tasked with envisioning the Highway Patrol’s bad guy-foiling vehicle for the year 2025. The panel of judges included Academy of Art University’s Executive Director for the School of Industrial Design
, Tom Matano. To satisfy the specific needs of Highway Patrol officers, the designs had to meet certain criteria, including speed and agility for future freeway systems and appropriate size to navigate urban environments. The Academy Executive Director was impressed with the level of innovation and creativity this year, but one entry stood out above the rest to all of the judges. Subaru Global Design’s SHARC (Subaru Highway Automated Response Concept) has been crowned the winner of the competition.
