Eddie Ardolino

Without this man, Lawrie could not have accomplished what he did.

Lawrie’s methodology for creating architectural sculpture consisted of:

This required the trust of his crew, working halfway across the continent, in an age with no email, faxes, I.M.s, texts or smart phones.  And in an age when all freight was shipped by train, instead of cargo jets.

Lawrie worked with Ardolino on many buildings and trusted him to faithfully execute his designs in the stone.  If not for the trust that Lawrie placed in Ardolino and his team of Italian-American stone carvers,  much of his work would have been impossible.  When one considers the logistics involved in such work, it is mind boggling.
