Frank Lloyd Wright: Conserving St. Mark’s Tower Model

The MOMA’s response to architecture model/maquette restauration.

One can argue that they could have gone all the way but I guess they felt the need to preserve time weatherings to respect an archeological point of view. The marks left by the heavy use of the model might represent something historically but I feel that models are not about that, they are about representation of spaces. So it is important to be able to see this representation clearly and accurately.
