Prepping Powell Street

Audi Progress on Powell

It’s morning on Powell Street, and work has officially commenced to prepare for installation. First up, city workers removed the parking meters on both sides of the street. The project is eliminating the parking lanes to give more space to pedestrians. And having a few less obstacles on the sidewalks isn’t bad, either.

Next, Scott Atthowe and his team from Atthowe Fine Art Services set about meticulously marking the street and mapping out the layout to the specifications of the design blueprints. Atthowe has the unenviable task of making it all happen, from assembly to construction and installation. When it comes to unconventional projects like this, these guys are the experts, with over 30 years of experience in art and major exhibition installations for galleries, museums and public spaces around the world.

About Audi Progress - Powell StreetAbout Audi Progress - Powell Street

Design. It's in our DNA. It's why we believe that a boldly designed car deserves a boldly designed world. A world that lives up to the same philosophy of uncompromising craftsmanship and innovation that defines our cars. So we launched the Audi Design Project: Progress on Powell Street. An urban design initiative inspired by the all-new Audi A7, with the mission to re-imagine the world beyond our cars. We took two of the most storied and overcrowded blocks in San Francisco, and set out to redefine the experience.
