This set includes a series of models that were built as part of the design process for the National Museum of the American Indian, part of the Smithsonian Institution. They were built for Jones & Jones, a lead design consultant on the project. There are two models at different scales for the main entry and gathering space called the Potomac. The larger scale model was built to assist the artist who was designing the crystal installation for the south facing wall. Two models of the second gift shop design are included (study and finished). It was redesigned after it was moved to a different location in the building. Next is a model of a portion of the copper wall that divides the ramp from the center floor of the Potomac.

These models were an integral part of the design process, helping the architects to envision the space. I was deeply honored to be part of the process to create this amazing building. Read more about the building here http://www.nmai.si.edu/opening/explore/museum.html
