Frank Stephenson on Auto Design, Biomimicry and the 12C - Core77
"It starts with him fielding questions about relatively mundane things like paint textures, the benefits of carbon fiber and how you manage to cram luggage space into a supercar, but stick it out and you're treated to the questions Stephenson asks himself during the design process: Why is a sailfish faster in the water than a cheetah is on land? How is it that the peregrine falcon is not the fastest bird in standard flight, but becomes the fastest when going into a dive? Why are multimillion-dollar military aircraft designed without windshield wipers?"
