For the duration of Summer, I will be working in the General Motors Technical Center in Warren, Michigan. For this internship, I am assigned to Cadillac's Interior Studio. I've been working for a week now, and it has already exceeded my expectations.
It's much older than I expected, but kept really tidy. Not much clay on the floors even though models are everywhere in the building. Half the lights in the hallways are always turned off, guess that's gm's way of saving every penny. My id gives me access to all the studios in the building, many of the projects being worked on now are for release in 2014.
Everybody is really helpful, and the atmosphere is really positive. There is a lot of laughter all around, which is always good to have. My project should be making rounds in the 2011 Autoshows hopefully (and that's all I can say).

For studio this past semester, we had an in-class competition sponsored by Ward's Auto publication calling for a sustainable interior concept for 2020. My interior proposal was based on stretching flax fabric over almond shell molded sub-frames to form the interior components.
Yesterday at the SAE congress in Detroit, it was announced that I was one of the 4 finalists contending for the top honours. I am very grateful for everyone's kind words and compliments these past 2 days. There has also been a surprising amount of media coverage for the event.
Ward's will announce the result in about a month's time. So check back often!

Presented the interior project this past Tuesday. Funny thing is, they did all the judging on the night, but aren't going to inform us on who the winner is until their interiors conference that's held in May. We're moving on to sketch projects now, so I will be posting loads of sketches these next 3-4 weeks. Check back often!
