A 32 metre-high sculpture for Audi at the Goodwood Festival of Speed in West Sussex, England.

Designed by Gerry Judah it celebrates Audi’s achievements in motor sport with the legendary 1937 Auto Union Streamliner and the recently launched R8 V10 sports car at either end of a dramatic “swoosh” of tyre tracks, as if they are driving off into the sky.

The Wave

June 24, 2009


The Wave is inspired by the hills, sea and sky of the surrounding area. The architectural challenges in the project has been to create a sculpture combined with functional and thoughtful residential into the smallest detail.

Wave is created with two faces, so that is great both from water and from the city where citizens are guaranteed a sea view and a beautiful sculpture. The same idea is drawn into the apartments through the big glass window, respectively, the undulating city landscape and the sea.

Wave

February 8, 2009


Wave form both a sculpture and an inviting and luxurious outdoor furniture, reminding of a hammock. Wave consist of electro-polished stainless steel and perforated fabric. The fabric is semi-transparent, and at the same time it offers protection from the sun, blocking 86 percent of the sun’s rays.

The idea is to convey the feeling of lying underneath the canopy of a tree, surrounded by a defined, natural space.

In Charybdis the circular movement of water inside a transparent acrylic cylinder forms an air-core vortex in the centre. Steps wrap around the cylinder and allow spectators to view the vortex from above.

A high level of water filtration is essential for maintaining transparency and thereby expressing the drama of the vortex.  click on the link to see the video.
