JAMES CARPENTER James Carpenter Design Associates

American Artist James Carpenter Selected as Lead Artist

Congratulations James Carpenter!

With over 40 years of experience and a rare synthesis of skills to the intersection of art, engineering, and the built environment James Carpenter is set to radically change the San Diego Skyline.

Carpenter and James Carpenter Design Associates will be a vital member of the Board-approved design-build team, which includes Turner-Flatiron and Gensler. This unusual and groundbreaking collaboration is the first of its kind for the San Diego Airport Authority. Usually, artists are commissioned to design original works of art inside and outside the building. Conversely, Carpenter and team have been charged with developing a design for the building itself, focusing on the south façade.

“designing buildings is not the normal terrain for a sculptor, but sculpture does something that architecture often doesn’t and that is to engage the phenomenological qualities of its environment.”

~ James Carpenter

San Diego Airport Authority Press Release:

There is something beautiful and dangerous about a working foundry. It’s amazing that the technique of lost wax casting is still virtually unchanged for the last 7000 years. The startling thing is the timelessness of the art—the age-old technique of Lost Wax Casting.
