Revolutionizing the Road: Post World War II Car Design in Europe and America


After World War II, car design underwent a major transformation in Europe and America, marking a shift in design philosophies amidst reconstruction challenges. In the U.S. during the 1950s, extravagant designs with tailfins and vibrant colors embodied the post-war American dream of size and power, showcased in the "Revolutionizing the Road" exhibition. Meanwhile, post-war Europe embraced efficient, minimalist design seen in iconic models like the Volkswagen Beetle. The exhibit features renowned manufacturers like Mercedes, Ferrari, and Fiat, highlighting the blending of performance and style. Technological advancements like disc brakes are also showcased, transforming the driving experience. "Revolutionizing the Road" offers insight into post-World War II car design and its impact on societal values, a testament to an era of resilience and creativity.
