Ainda não há conversas na Discussão sobre este livro.
"In Transport Design Gregory Votolato charts 200 years of journeying in all its complexity and variety. Organized in three parts - air, land, water - Transport Design includes the widest possible range of vehicles, from canoes to spacecraft, from limousines to Zeppelins. It charts the evolving design of these and other types of transportation, exploring the relationship between mass transit and the travel experience, probing such issues as design styles, economics, entertainment and, most important, customized comfort. And it reveals how pioneering ideas in design and technology aimed at improving travel comfort set the precedents for many of today's personal office and home furnishings. Votolato's contention is that twenty-first century pressures on a world reeling from environmental degradation demand from all of us a radical reappraisal of how and why we travel. This compelling book will be of interest to many people professionally involved in travel and logistics; it is essential reading for transport historians, and design students and scholars."--BOOK JACKET.
