After creating an award trophy for Marriott last year, I was asked to additionally create scale models of eight different hotels around the United States. They were presented to the hotels themselves as awards for design, construction, collaboration, and and participation. This hotel is located outside Dallas, Texas.

The hotel was very challenging to build because unlike most architecture, there is very little, if any, symmetry in the design of the building. Areas are set back to different depths, colors change from floor to floor in different patterns on both the front and back, and -- to top it all off -- every portion of the pitched, sloped roof needed to line up perfectly with everything else (and work out correctly with the "LEGO math" of slopes. It made me truly appreciate how complex the real hotel must have been to build.
