29 Palms



Scott was commissioned by Frank Gehry to create portraits of architectural models during the period in which Gehry was fast becoming an internationally famous architect. The architect sketched his embryonic designs in abstract and fluid squiggles on paper from which scale models were created. He used these three-dimensional renditions to refine his sculptural designs until he was satisfied, at which point professional model makers built a sophisticated scaled replica of the building suitable for exhibition and publication.
