Every year he teaches maximum of two students in majoring sculptures and hand crafted work. Every month up to a maximum of ten people are allowed to come and visit his art work (which doesnt and hasnt changed since its his MAJOR artwork). The workshop is located on the ground floor, were it’s a private area even though is right next to entrance/exit.
He lives his life in the second storey in the corner of King St and Erskineville Rd, were falls and rises with nature and society. It is very private areas were no one will be allowed to go in, and the design is made so that people would not explore that area of the building.

Reading the book “DAYLIGHT PERFORMANCE OF BUILDINGS” BY Marc Fontoynont, from the chapter on museums, I had understood that daylight is not a very good source of light for artwork such as paintings, drawings, collages and oil paintings, thus 2% of light is enough to enter. For sculptors and hand made artwork, more natural light is needed because with a sculptor you look at it from all angles and therefore manufactured light will not give the observer the satisfied perspective.
The building called “Prince Sculptures” is based on the principle of public (ground level) to private (floor two). The idea of the design was brought up by the original building that stands there today. The exterior of the building were ideas from looking at works from Peter Eisenman (forming a building from a cube), Casa del Fascio and Petrobras Headquarteers.
