Albert has design and built more than 40 gates over the last five decades. Each one from the private driveway gate commissions to the National Cathedral Gate, even the Renwick Portal, they all started with an idea and a sketch. Here is an assortment of Albert’s gate drawings.
“Albert Paley’s drawings are the link between his creative imagination and the architectural sculpture, ornament, and objects of decorative art he has been creating since 1973, the year he established Paley Studios in Rochester, New York.”
