My latest commission piece, and certainly one I'm more grateful to have had the opportunity to undertake. Sometimes it's my slightly less architectural works that end up teaching me the most! “The best journeys answer questions that in the beginning you didn’t even think to ask.” 👐
I recently completed two commission pieces for Hiscall, Inc.; a 1:200 scale headquarters model and 48" x 12.5" logo wall art. I love commissions of obscure places like these as they really give me an opportunity to explore new solutions for seemingly banal façades. Plus, this is the first time I've ever used purple LEGO!
My latest commission model, Highland Park Place, consists of more than 1,100 pieces and was commissioned as a Christmas present for one of the building's developers.
Highland Park Place is an eighteen-story highrise located in the Knox Henderson District in Dallas. Since it was completed in 1984, the building has offered more than 164,000 sq ft of office space and it is currently owned by KBS Realty Advisors.
A couple weeks ago, I traveled to Minneapolis to install my largest commission yet; a sculpture and live-build mosaic for Tyler Technologies at a trade show. The sculpture was a yellow "80" to celebrate the company's eightieth anniversary and the live-build was assembled by the attendees out of 384 8x8 sections made up of 24,576 individual 1x1 bricks! Certainly outside of my typical architectural purview, but I'm happier for it having learned some completely new workflows!
A small, but thoroughly enjoyable commission model for Happy State Bank in Fort Worth, TX. Designing the instructions ended up taking longer than the model itself!
