Fahrtraum Students Award

Mobility in the future
Show us your visionary vehicle!

The Ferdinand Porsche Erlebniswelten fahr(T)raum in Mattsee combines contemporary history with innovation. The "Milestones of Mobility" exhibition sees itself as a tribute to the Austrian car pioneer and visionary.
The entire exhibition houses over 33 automobiles from the period 1901-1940 – from carriage to beetle. In the so-called "Traktorstadl" in the basement, the motorisation of agriculture is depicted with more than 20 historic tractors. The austere and functional architecture of a former industrial building provides the framework for the exhibits on loan from Ing. Ernst Piech, Ferdinand Porsche´s eldest grandson.

fahr(T)raum initiates the „Mobility in the future“ competition in memory of the great visionary Ferdinand Porsche.

Students are called upon to submit their visionary vehicle concepts for the transport of people. It is not primarily about technical innovations, but about conceptual ideas and visionary design.

:: In what form will people move in the future?
:: How important will private transport remain?
