  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. 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?
  3. Now that South Main and The Citadel are nearing completion, Allen Harrison will soon move forward with their next project which is planned for the Museum District. https://www.museumparkna.org/event-3361584
  4. https://houston.eater.com/2018/9/20/17883368/dantons-seafood-montrose-relocating-mockingbird-bistro Do we know of anything "cooking" at this site? I could easily see a mid/high rise going in at this site.
  5. A 'feasability study' has been submitted to the FAA for a 370' ft building at 1500-1598 Calumet St. https://oeaaa.faa.gov/oeaaa/external/searchAction.jsp?action=displayOECase&oeCaseID=407159141&row=2
  6. http://swamplot.com/where-youll-see-the-new-42-story-highrise-on-hermann-dr/2013-08-09/ Another 40+ story tower for Houston? And this one is supposed to having a twisting facade?! Great time to be in Houston!
  7. 85-unit affordable housing complex to sit behind Hanover Hermann Park https://www.houstontx.gov/council/committees/housing/20190917/housingdept.pdf
  8. European style midrise condo building proposed at 4802 Caroline St by Urban Flats Builders. This will be next to Park on Caroline and Oaks on Caroline http://www.chron.com/news/article/Urban-Flats-Builder-sets-focus-on-mid-rise-market-6609073.php https://www.facebook.com/Ridge-on-Caroline-839683789420103/info/?tab=overview
  9. 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...
  10. Cool. also noticed their website lists a 20-story building with 303 apartments to be in Montrose.
  11. Swamplot is reporting that Hines is buying up property near the relatively new Asia Society Texas Center to construct a 20 to 22 story apartment tower. Swamplot article
  12. Looks like Alexan is building an apartment complex in the musuem district per the Hou Planning Commission. It's in keymap 493w which is more or less bounded by Richmond to the north, just east of spur 527 exit to the east, Bissonnet to the south and the Rothko Chapel area to the west. More or less the map below.
