More than half a century ago, Syd Mead began depicting the next generation of concept cars in the futuristic settings that he imagined they would exist. His works went on to include not only industrial design for automobiles and other vehicles, also theme parks, urban planning, NASA projects, and more than 50 movies including “Star Trek” (1979) and “ Blade Runner” (1982). His creations encompass a wide variety of themes about a modern society living in harmony with nature. As we face the current pandemic, environmental issues, and global relations, I hope that Syd Mead's vision will server as an inspiration for what is possible.
