The China Railway Corporation has released images of the new 350kmh High Speed Train being developed specifically for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics. The train will be used to convey passengers, media and athletes between Beijing and the Olympic site in Zhangjiakou, 200km’s to the north west of Beijing. IDA has been commissioned through its partner Fordyno, to create the exterior styling and livery design for CRRC. The exterior styling evokes high performance, energy and movement in pure lines, all attributes associated with Olympic sports.
IDA’s scope included conceptualisation, 3D visualisation, 3D surface modelling and design refinement through working with CRC’s aerodynamics and production engineering teams.
