Car designers around the world, please help us to raise this baby. Make it yours.

Yes, you can!

Through the past five years I have been running a blog dedicated to car design with an experimental approach. I was eager to establish a bridge with the design community and to gain experience on the web.

Now, time has come for a new project with broader goals, focuses and reach.

The goal is to establish a very lively «Café littéraire» where professional designers, design educators and students, car and design enthusiasts meet, show their ideas, discuss design matters and trends, contribute with their own reports and stories to the development of a modern design culture, with past experiences and inputs from different cultures.

Please subscribe to our " Newsletter" to keep up with the progress Automotive Design Club International.

And, please, invite all your friends to join us, here and now.

Work is in progress. Be part of it!

Lyn 180

Lyn R. Zbinden began his career in automotive design with AM General creating, in 1979, the original ‘HUMMER’, after Renault purchased AM General. Subsequently, Lyn was selected to design for Renault Sport F1 in Viry-Châtillon, Paris, France, where he specialised in aerodynamics. He began his career in glass/ceramics engineering with Saturn Corporation upon his return to the U.S., where he designed the first Saturn windshield and backlite.


He then led General Motors’ glass and glazing efforts, with a multi-national team responsible for the design, engineering, manufacturing, and sourcing of its product portfolio for the next decade. Lyn breaks down complex concepts into “knowledge bites,” in his column in Automotive Design Club International. Lyn R. Zbinden currently consults to the transportation industry, and is an active member of SAE International. He is the author: Glass Engineering: Design Solutions for Automotive Applications, published by the American Society of Automotive Engineers.
