Flight in Los Angeles, California
Flight is a 20-foot tall cast aluminum contemporary sculpture. The circle centered on this sleek metal form evokes the feeling of a shock wave created by speeding aircraft, as the two vertical elements race into the future. The narrow silhouette allows the sculpture to enhance the background without blocking the view.
We were initially contacted by art consultant Emily Santangelo to come up with some proposals for 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.
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 ensure 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.
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.
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.
We are looking forward to the possibility of working with your team to create a powerful ‘art experience’ that will help enhance the architecture, elevate the community, and become something beautiful, educational, and meaningful for you.
