Many of these sheets are studies for a gate commissioned by the Dallas patrons James and Lillian Clark in June 1964. The gate was required to fill a space between house and garden wall, measuring 1473 x 838 x 203 mm. There are also several studies for a fountain, together with notes about the movement of water. These may relate to a commission from the Greater London Council in June 1965 to work with the landscape architect Sylvia Crowe on a monumental sculpture, possibly incorporating a water feature at the north entrance of the Blackwell Tunnel. This scheme foundered in the following year. See further studies in TGA 8421/1/44.
