Port Canaveral Drive-In is a proposal for a complex which embodies the hallmarks of American car culture. The programme incorporates various elements, such as the drive-in cinema, the American diner and the motel in a single facility, which also functions as a viewing space for rocket launches. Being located at the tip of Port Canaveral’s Pier, the site is in a prime location and the layout of parking bays and motel cabins were carefully for the viewing of rocket launches and the sunrise. Aspects of automobiles, such as panel contours, chassis and suspension informed the overall design aesthetic.
