Led by Professor Gordon Murray, whose 50-year career encompasses Formula 1 World Championship-winning cars for Brabham and McLaren and the McLaren F1 Road Car which is still regarded as the world’s best engineered vehicle, Gordon Murray Design has built a Global reputation as one of the ‘finest automotive design teams in the World’ and was established in 2007 to develop an innovative and disruptive manufacturing technology trademarked iStream®.

Gordon Murray Design HQ

Gordon Murray Design recently celebrated its founder’s five decades of vehicle design and engineering with a landmark exhibition. One Formula gathered together, for the first and possibly only time in one location, more than 40 iconic and historically significant race and road cars from Professor Gordon Murray’s 50-year career.

Founding Director Richard Jobson said, “The cross-over between automotive design and buildings has fascinated architects ever since the first production car was completed. It is therefore incredibly exciting to develop a series of buildings which will enable GMD to continue to be at the forefront of global car design. We are also excited about the huge sustainable opportunities the new iStream cars will offer and feel privileged to be able to play a small part in that vision.”

Professor Gordon Murray said, “At Gordon Murray Design we are working with cutting edge materials and technology and our iStream Manufacturing Technology is a highly disruptive process which is pushing forward the boundaries of Automotive design, so I am very pleased to be working with Design Engine on the design of a new headquarter building for our company which will reflect that innovative work.”
