Barber Motorsports Park

Overview

Torque is a monumental sculpture constructed in stainless steel and finished with a automotive finish. The piece was designed and fabricated for Barber Motorsports Park in Leeds, Alabama. Mr. Barber wanted a piece that had great movement and scale. After several rounds of design we came up with Torque and Mr. Barber loved it. The 25′ scale paired with elegant movement definitely has a presence in the space. The relationship between the winding forms really creates interesting compositions all angles.

Goals

Barber Motorsports Park is a magnificent park with over 40 sculptures in the collection, a state of the art race track, and a unbelievable motorsports museum. The bar was definitely set high for this project. We wanted to create something truly unique for Mr. Barber's collections while following the parameters of his vision.
