More information

Körmeling is an artist, architect and inventor. He built the imaginative and festive Happy Street pavilion for Expo 2010 in Shanghai and has conceived a rigorous solution for the Netherlands’ traffic problem in the form of extremely broad motorways. As an extension of this idea, he has built this prototype square car, a highly eco-friendly vehicle that is also easy to park.
