pictures of near-identical design circa 1980's. Such a common style...

but the 1986 Sunray is kind of cute with a "happy face" fascia.

Jesus Christ...
Are you really so insecure about your design capabilities? Do you feel menaced by this woman architect? She's a bad designer because she's ugly? Are you pretty? Because I can't really understand...

You realy seem to know a lot about industrial architecture, to be talking about the factory... Just as much as she knows about design? I guess less...

Many people design cars, even if they don't come from the transportation design branche... Many cars didn't even had a designer input, and still are amazing (remeber eng. porsche?).

And finaly: until the late 60's, most designer were architects...
Her design isn't that much, it's true... but it can be better that many made by designers I saw...

So, please, all of you people: come back to reality. And stop feeling menaced by her, because she doesn't care about car styling (note I didn's say "design")... more about car architecture, if you know the diference.

Your hostility towards her just reveals a huge weekness: instead, you should try to learn something from the input of a diferent field of design/engineering, as it is always enriching to the design culture.

I have to admit: after looking at the Standard Taxi again, this Hadid car is looking pretty good.

By the way: she has many projects built, and they are very easy to find, if you're interested.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zaha_Hadid wiki about her
http://www.contemporaryartscenter.org/ this one is in Ohio
http://www.arcspace.com/architects/hadid/cac/index.htm more of the same

Interestingly, her architecture is very detailed, as oposite to this z-car.
But I guess that if she was someone we liked, we'd say the design has a scandinavian feel, rather than saying it is under-detailed, so it's not that important...

They have one of the really old HUGE wacom tablets, intuos (one) the white/gray ones. The computers they are on are very 1995 witch is cool cus it is retro, maybe???? And that is the most horrid website ever, and the first image when it is loading scares me.

lol. we had 'field fights' in uni. ultimately architects win cus if the build the biggest. its easier to go smaller.. industrial designers are more hmm..manly. graphic designers are more umm.. 'arty'.

caveman drew to decorate interiors. i reckon interior design wins!
