Dynaform

"Wir fahrn, fahrn, fahrn auf der Autobahn Wir fahrn, fahrn, fahrn auf der Autobahn Die Fahrbahn ist ein graues Band weisse Streifen grüner Rand ..."
Kraftwerk, 1974

The BMW exhibition pavilion for the IAA 2001 focused attention on the world premiere of the new 7 Series and expressed with its dynamic shape the BMW brand essence: the joy of driving. We accelerated the space around the vehicles so as to suggest the sensation of driving. The Dynaform was generated in a computer simulation by overlapping the spatially translated Doppler effect and environmental forces.
