Note générale

Developments at Art Center, October 1972: Volvo Presents Art Center Design Project AB Volvo, Car Division, of Gothenburg, Sweden, one of Europe's leading automotive corporations, has established a design project for Art Center's advanced transportation design students. Volvo's chief designer, Jan Wilsgaard, a 1966 graduate of Art Center, visited the college early in October to present the problem which involves a two-dimensional package design for a contemporary five-passenger family automobile. One of Volvo's senior engineers, Jan Lake, will visit the class for a mid-project critique. The assignment will occupy about seven weeks of the current term, and the students' finished design drawings will be forwarded to Sweden in January for the final critique. Funds allocated by Volvo to this project include a $2,000 grant to Art Center.
