Owens Valley: Motel, Restaurant, Truck Stop, Saloon
Owens Valley: Motel, Restaurant, Truck Stop, Saloon

Architectural design based on surrealist tactics and methodologies for a site in the Owens Valley. The designs include a motel, restaurant, truck stop, and saloon. The framing of this project is based on the evaluation of the Dada artist Marcel Duchamp’s Large Glass, or the Bride Stripped Bare by her Bachelors, Even.

These next few images are shots of the motel architectural model, which was affixed to the drawing and hung on the wall. The model acted as a plan in two dimensions, and model in three dimensions.
