Meet one of the most influential designers of our time—a book about heritage, creative vision, and leadership, and what design can do for the future. Roots and Wings
explore the life and work of Peter Schreyer, one of the most influential car designers of our time. A Renaissance man with an eye for detail and foresight for innovation, he geared himself toward success. Responsible for the births of some of the most iconic cars ever, his industry experience with Volkswagen, Audi, Kia, and Hyundai brought instant classics to the road.
Schreyer embodies a conduit between the West and East—bridging his homeland’s history of automotive design with South Korea, a country that has experienced stratospheric growth on the world stage in just a few decades. Looking at the formative moments and pivotal artistic discoveries that shaped his creative mindset, Roots and Wings is the story of how a man helped two polarizing cultures merge to create something unique and left a mark on history, and the future, in the process.
