Is there a mesh available for the art sculpture "cloud gate" in Chicago?

Probably not, but it looks simple enough for you to replicate yourself in any 3d software.
Or if your brave enough use bleizer patches and hand code it.

I'm not sure what you mean. Maybe simple enough if I want to do my own free form version in a 3d package. But I was looking towards making a somewhat precise model. Maybe there are archetectural drawings- after all, you wouldn't put up tons of steel with out at least a sketch. And yes I would use bezier patches if I could get the data to build them from. Sorry if I wasn't clearer on the precision I was after.
