CCS 2020 Transportation Design Summer exhibition

CCS MFA Thesis Shahbaaz Nilgriwala 04

We review the latest work of the Transportation Design students at Detroit’s College for Creative Studies

2020 will be forever remembered as a year of unprecedented disruption. It has seen tragedy, but it has also seen incredible bravery, resistance, and a global uprising of hope and renewal. And while schools around the world continue to grapple with uncertainty, all have the opportunity to embrace the excitement of seeding new foundations and blazing new paths. As we forge ahead, CCS Transportation Design is taking the chance to first look back at the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) Thesis projects from 2019’s graduates. These projects were not published then to make more space for sponsored projects but their collective spirit of disruption seems particularly fitting to show now. The MFA Thesis topics range broadly from the pragmatic to the philosophical. Common to all, however, is the drive to push the limits of how we might envision the future of transportation and the society it will move.
