Fishing for inspiration

People often decry the suburban sprawl of the Inland Empire.

Some people love, and some people hate, the warehouse sprawl of the Inland Empire.

So what did two Santa Monica architects, Hadrian Predock and John Frane, do about it?

the duo's latest exhibition, "Inland Empire" at the Pomona College Museum of Art, is dominated by a model of the area's most unique structures -- here, a 16-by-16-foot box nearest the ceiling. Filling a gallery, the entire work is composed of a series of white Foamcor model structures -- each representing a different type of building in the region -- suspended by 750 nylon fishing lines.

Makes sense, since you can fish at Cucamonga-Guasti Regional Park.

The trout and catfish are stocked.
