Spotlight – Ben Meza

Ben Meza is no one trick pony, so it was no surprise when he was approached with the prospect of sculpting a relief of Mr. Robert Mosher for the Green Dragon Colony in La Jolla, that he jumped at the opportunity, and impressed us all. So here’s a sneak preview, just for you…

This is the image that Ben used to begin to sculpt the relief.
Early on in the process. You can see the small maquette that Ben had made to reference.

Here Ben has refined the sculpture of Mr. Mosher, and he appears far less amorphous that he had in previous incarnations of the piece.

 

Mr. Mosher gets to check out Bens handy work. Looking good!

 

The next step is something mystical, and we arent completely sure how it is turned from clay into bronze, but we are inclined to believe that it is a combination of ancient and secret arts, involving certain degrees of alchemy and mysticism. We’ll keep you updated!

Check out this incredible photo taken by our amazing photographer Andrew Burns ( www.andrewburnsphoto.com ). It’s by far one of our favorite shots! It’s an interior photo of the stairwell at the Extended Study Center at San Diego State University that we designed in 2004:

the new mosherdrew.com

Thanks for visiting the new mosherdrew.com!

Over the past 9 months, we have been working hard revamp the mosher drew brand and bring our website into this century. A committee of six met weekly to discuss direction, tone, focus and theme for our new logo and website. We initially settled on changing the firm name from Architects MDWF to Architects Mosher Drew. Mosher Drew is the brand name everyone recognizes. We think the new website represents our evolution as a firm, and illustrates our mission to create inspiring, inventive and unique design ideas.

 

Almost all the amazing photographs seen on our website were taken by the very talented Andrew Burns ( www.andrewburnsphoto.com ). He travelled with us throughout San Diego county over the course of a few months and rephotographed our signature projects. His artistic eye inspired us to present our buildings as a gallery of beautiful imagery from different scales and viewpoints. Enjoy!

 

We’ll be updating the blog a few times a week, so please check back to see what we’ve been up to!
