The Curve SUMMER 2018
The Curve SUMMER 2018 ARCHITECTURE NEW 007 MISSION FOR JAGUAR You may not be able to tear around the Alps like James Bond in the 2015 hit Spectre, but thanks to a new cinematic installation near the Austrian town of Sölden, you can enjoy an immersive, interactive experience that places you inside his world. Open to the public starting in July 2018, 007 Elements combines state-of-the-art technology with stark contemporary architecture, creating a captivating experience with a dramatic cinematic soundscape set in nature’s awe-inspiring surroundings. Located about 10,000 feet above sea level at the summit of the Gaislachkogl mountain, the roughly 14,000 sq. foot building has been built into the iconic mountain and welcomes guests with a series of galleries, each distilling the craft of signature elements of a James Bond film. As the installation’s exclusive automotive partner, Jaguar Land Rover is providing experiences for the building’s new Tech Lab, with a focus on Spectre, which was shot in Sölden and featured the Jaguar C-X75 concept vehicle. 007.com/007-elements SCIENCE MIND THE BUMP Non-Newtonian liquids are a puzzle to most of us, but are wonders of the scientific world. Liquids that don’t behave in the way they’re meant to are generally considered a cool scientific experiment to show children, but have little practical use – until now. Spanish company Badennova has created an intelligent speed bump from the liquid: Travel over the bump at an acceptable speed and the particles remain liquid, but go too fast and the pressure on the bump causes the particles to align into a solid state. They’re the savior of car suspensions – so look out for them near you. PHOTOGRAPHY: 007 ELEMENTS (2), PR, MATT ELLIOTT (3) 12 THEJAGUAR
WHEN UK ROYAL MARINE MARK ORMROD LOST THREE LIMBS, IT SEEMED UNLIKELY HE’D SURVIVE, LET ALONE “EXCEL IN SPORT PERFORMANCE DETERMINED TO SUCCEED Jaguar is all about celebrating the extraordinary, and the winner of the Jaguar Award for exceptional performance, determination and dedication embodies all those qualities in abundance. When UK Royal Marine Mark Ormrod lost three of his limbs after kneeling on an improvised explosive device in Afghanistan, it seemed unlikely that he’d survive, let alone excel in sports. Yet after waking up in a hospital in Birmingham several days later, he decided he didn’t want to spend his life in a wheelchair. His determination and dedication has since resulted in four medals at the Invictus Games: two silvers in the indoor men’s rowing and two bronze medals in the men’s ISA 100-meter and 50-meter freestyle swimming events. A truly extraordinary achievement, proving that if you put your mind to it, there really is no limit to how far you can go. THEJAGUAR 13
