We were initially contacted by art consultant Emily Santangelo to come up with some proposals for a new residential housing by Equity Development near the Howard Hughes Center in West Los Angeles.
The client wanted a very tall “airy” piece that would speak to the name and the location. We designed three different sculptures for the proposal, and they chose to move forward on our favorite, “Flight”. These are two of our initial proposal images.
Maquette (Small Version)
After the proposal was approved, Adam created a small scale version of the sculpture to confirm the design approval, and to use for measurements as we created the full scale version of the sculpture.
We headed to LA to complete a site visit. This allowed us to meet the construction manager, generally discuss site placement and preparation and create the connections, relationships and communication pathways that would insure a simple and successful installation. We brought the Maquette with us so that we could help everyone visualize what it will look like on site.
Back to the shop
After the site visit we came home to resume work on the sculpture
Throughout the process we compare the Maquette to the full size sculpture and making adjustments to make sure it stays on course.
Delivery and Installation
We have delivered and installed sculptures all over the country. Our team gets the sculpture to the location safe and sound, and makes installation safe, quick and as simple as possible.
