Scaffoldings Project


Scaffolding at downtown NYC

Scaffolding : noun, a temporary structure on the outside of a building, made usually of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workers while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.
Call me crazy but i find this beautiful… so beautiful that im going to base my first project on this. I wan’t to rebuild it, fun size, out of basswood.

Scaffoldings are one of those things that are easily noticeable but last for a short period of time. They come and go, never to be seen again, yet they are everywhere, elements of the city’s constant change. I wan’t to preserve some of these guys, and document them. See how they differ in size and complexity. Maybe create a series of them, maybe only one, only time can tell. But this is the beginning, I’ll document the progress. It’s like a little building of its own, and i think these guys deserve a little recognition.

Tomorrow im going to take a trip through nyc snapping photos, and stopping by my favorite spot Pearl Paint to pic up some material, and start plotting this model out. The proportions are just right to me, and i love the fire escape and the subway entrence located within the confines of the scaffolding. I wan’t to capture all of that in this model, with lots of detail, i’ll start drawing it out tonight.
