You are absolutely right Marshall. The firm of Frank O. Gehry &
Associates in Santa Monica, California (tel: 310-828-6088, fax:
310-828-2098, contact Mr. David Reddy or Mr. Rick Smith) had used LOM
technology in 1991 to build a scale model of the "fish / bird" structure
which was designed for the Olympic Games in Barcelona. This structure
is located in the Barcelona harbor and it is about 200 feet long and 90
feet high. The LOM model was used to help the construction people
visualize the design.

Other LOM models were produced for the same firm in order to make a
scale mock-up of the Disney Music Hall.
