Diales collaborate to deliver another sculpture at the Goodwood Festival of Speed

Diales Technical, in collaboration with artist Gerry Judah, is delighted to announce its instrumental role in the creation of another stunning central display sculpture for the Goodwood Festival of Speed 2023. This collaborative endeavour with artist Gerry Judah showcases the creative synergy between art and engineering.


Bruno Postle, Structural Designer at Diales Technical, played a crucial role in developing the sculpture’s design in close collaboration with artist Gerry Judah. Their shared vision and meticulous attention to detail ensured the creation of a captivating structure that embodies the spirit of Porsche. Hooman Baghi, Technical Expert and Structural Engineer at Diales, worked alongside Postle to ensure the structural integrity, performance, and safety of the sculpture. Through careful calculations and rigorous testing, Baghi ensured that the design met all necessary requirements.

 

The temporary sculpture stands twenty-five metres tall and is crafted from steel. Its intricate design features a central dodecahedral core with curved hoops and six straight arms, each adorned with a priceless original classic Porsche car. The arrangement creates a striking composition, with the illusion of the cars bursting forth in motion, showcasing a seamless integration of form and function.

 

The sculpture is a testament to the meticulous planning and execution by Diales Technical. The steel superstructure, weighing just forty tonnes, demonstrates their expertise in material utilisation and optimisation. Anchored by an underground steel grillage weighing eight tonnes and a concrete foundation, the sculpture stands tall, embodying strength and stability.

The sculpture’s intricate details allude to the craftsmanship involved, with a network of tubes spanning a total length of one hundred and sixty metres, varying diameters of 508 millimetres and 762 millimetres, and fins covering an area of one hundred and twenty-three square metres.

 

Diales Technical takes great pride in its collaboration with Gerry Judah, which has resulted in the creation of this extraordinary sculpture. Their commitment to excellence and the seamless fusion of art and engineering have produced a captivating masterpiece that celebrates the spirit of Porsche and the of Goodwood Festival of Speed.

 

The unveiling of this extraordinary sculpture took place during the 2023 Goodwood Festival of Speed from the 13th – 16th July 2023. This year’s Festival of Speed was the 30th anniversary event, which coincides with Porsche celebrating its 75th anniversary of the registration of its first sports car – the 356. Six iconic Porsche cars hang from the Gerry Judah-designed sculpture: the 962, 963, 718/2, 911 Carrera, 911 Sport Classic, and the 365 .
