  5. FYI, I took the family to Hermann Park Saturday morning. What a gem this park is!! The renovations to the reflection pool and McGovern Lake are fantastic. There have also been a lot of reforestation projects undertaken that will pay dividends in a few years. We should be proud of Hermann. . . it's a great urban park. Do yourself a favor and spend a couple of hours there soon. It is a good stress reliever. . .

  10. 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 Contemporar

Feb. 15, 2005, 6:12AM BEQUEST TO MFA COULD SET RECORD FOR AN ART MUSEUM Oil heiress's gift ultimately may be up to $450 million By SHANNON BUGGS Copyright 2005 Houston Chronicle The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, soon could be entered in the annals of philanthropy as the recipient of the largest cash gift to a fine arts museum ever publicly announced.

  14. I found this proposal while skimming LoopNet a while ago. Supposedly, someone wants to build a small medical office building with retail & a garage at that location with the aim of opening by early 2013. The brochure hints at a Phase Two that would be an "event center, bar/lounge" that would have retail. http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w208/houtosme/ParcBinzOne.jpg http://i177.photobucket.com/albums/w208/houtosme/ParcBinzOneA.jpg Links ----- LoopNet Listing Promotional Brochure
  15. According to The New York Times (Oct. 22, 2006), a new 20 foot-tall, 37-foot wide sculpture "constructed out of fiberglass, pulverized marble and lime cement" is to be installed on Nov. 12. The artist. Michael Somoroff. describes it as "a sculptural translation of light as it moves across the chapel." (Pictures of Illumination I can be seen on the artist's website.) If I'm understanding this correctly, it will be installed inside of the chapel. Wonder how they'll shoehorn it in there?
