Ferrari Museum

After a long and cramped van ride our travels brought us to the Ferrari museum in the outskirts of Modena, Italy. Our studio’s development of architectural skin as product blurs the line between architecture and industrial design, thus, Ferrari’s attention to detail and performance packaged in its signature shinny red sexiness provided a way for us to study the car design as it relates to architectural skin design. Our tour through the museum showcased the history of Ferrari racing while walking through the various models designed since Ferrari’s beginning in 1947. The detailing was impeccable and we saw a model of the wind tunnel used to during design. Cameron’s car form Ferris Bueller’s Day Off in 1986 car was featured in the museum, one of my personal favorites from the tour.
