More than half a century ago, Syd Mead began depicting the next generation of concept cars in the futuristic settings in which he imagined they would exist. His works went on to include not only industrial design for automobiles and other vehicles, but 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 modern society living in harmony with nature. As we confront a pandemic, an environmental crisis, and global political strife, I hope that Syd Mead's vision will serve as an inspiration for what is possible.
