  1. A new building is in the talking stages for the MFA. It would mainly house the 20th century and contemporary collections. The museum has 3 sites in mind. One is at the current garage location on Fannin. Another is across Binz from the garage and a third is north of the Mies wing off Main. There are any number of world-class architects worthy of the job. I'd like to hear any suggestions you might have regarding the selection. Here's a few of mine: Renzo Piano [Menil Collection; Cy Twombly] Yoshio Taniguchi [MOMA and the new Aisa Museum in Houston] Zaha Hadid [Rosenthal Center for Contemporary Art, Cincinnati] Rem Koolhaas [seattle Public Library] Those are but a few of my choices for architect. If you could add any pictures with your choices, that would be great. As always,
  2. I was at the MFAH yesterday looking at the Ife exhibit and got into a conversation with one of the attendants. She told me about a new MFAH wing/building slated to start construction in early-2011. I hadn't heard this before. According to her, the new facility will house modern and contemporary art. When I expressed surprise about this - given that the CAM is right there - she indicated that the CAM didn't "want to play ball" so the MFAH is going forward with this plan. The purported site is next to the Presbyterian church - where the surface lot across Binz now stands. Can anyone confirm this? Sorry if I'm behind the times. I didn't see this posted anywhere else...
