Capita Bobrowski Helps Create Audi Streamliner Sculpture

10 November 2009

Audi Streamliner

Capita Bobrowski – part of Capita Symonds - recently completed work on a 120% scale sliced-up sculpture of a classic 1930’s Auto Union Streamliner.

The car, which was designed by renowned sculptor Gerry Judah and produced by Littlehampton Welding, went on display at the opening of the £30m West London Audi, a huge multi-storey car showroom near Brentford.

Capita Bobrowski provided complex 3D modelling on the 750kg sculpture which is made from powder-coated, laser-cut aluminium sheet and comprises ninety-three 2mm blades.

Capita Bobrowski also works with Gerry Judah and Littlehampton Welding on the annual sculpture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (which this year also featured a replica Streamliner).

Bruno Postle, Capita Bobrowski, explains: “At one point the design for this year’s Goodwood sculpture featured a sliced-up oversized car created with a modified version of the software I wrote to do the Land Rover ‘rock’ the year before. We never pursued that idea as it wasn’t suitable for the site, but it was ideal for hanging in the car showroom.”
