Griffiths, Gareth

Gareth Griffiths’ sculptures are influenced by West Coast American architecture called ‘Googie’.  The origin of Googie derives from a John Lautner designed coffee shop built in West Hollywood and was born after the Second World War and became more notable during the 50’s and 60’s.

Originally appearing first in commercial buildings used primarily for restaurants, coffee shops, motels, gas stations and bowling alleys to name a few, architects at the time wanted to design buildings that stood out from others.
