Vehicle Design graduate Nir Siegel takes the prize for Best Design Interpretation in this year's Pilkington Vehicle Design Award at Show RCA, for his concept, Genesis, a 3-D printed, customised and self-assembled car.

The idea is to evolve products and services, based on customer needs, avoiding obsolescence. Starting out as an enclosed monolith, Genesis is a robotic 3D printer that is capable of printing a car around itself. Once purchased, delivered and set up at the customer's home Genesis will enable the user to custom build a vehicle according to his specifications.

This 3D self-assembling car is still a concept right now, but it should be possible in the future when technology advance. Nir Siegel is a vehicle designer currently finalizing his MA Vehicle design degree at the Royal College of Art in London.

One of the judges, Mike Greenall, director of automotive R&D programmes at NSG Group said, 'The increased pressure to produce economical, environmentally-friendly designs has led students to identify innovative glazing and innovative design that are set to shape the future of the automotive industry.'
