Design Challenge:
Qashqai is a resilient urban vehicle with distinct style. It is capable to take on whatever the city throws at it – Qashqai is ‘Urbanproof’. This is a search for ideas around Nissan’s tough and stylish Qashqai. Designs may challenge any element of urban parking (underground, exterior, interior, multi-layer, ground level, shape,
colors, material, smell, sound, ramps, signage, limits, etc.).

Urban parking is in need of a renovation. Ideas must challenge current perceptions of urban parking and offer a tougher, sleeker, or even playful rendering of it.

Submission Requirements:
-three images of the project
-brief description of ideas
-application form
