Alexander The Great Project

⇐Back to All Work
An ambitious project, a monumental, mountain stone carving in northern Greece of a portrait of Alexander the Great inspired by Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse carving in South Dakota. The carving is the idea of sculptor Andy Papadopoulis, a former student. I was retained as an architect to provide schematic design and conceptual renderings for a visitor’s center, museum and artist residences. For a somewhat cynical and mildy humorous take on this endeavor check out the Chicago Reader’s interview of Andy and myself. Andy later installed some smaller sculptures in the city of Asprovolta and I was hired by American developers and the local Greek government to study/render schematic designs for beachfront development.
