Manufactures often give us conceptual lifestyle designs, tossing together ideas of how we will soon all live our day to day lives. Some are ok, while others are just awful. But if I was to have a carport in the future and it look like this I would be pretty happy with it. BMW Designworks USA have developed this carport concept for their i-series electric cars.
The concept behind these carports is that you can have somewhere to park your vehicle without connecting it to the main grid as it can get it power from solar panel roof. Bamboo was chosen as it is a fast growing sustainable raw material, mixed with carbon fibre to create a strong light weight structure.
