It looked cool, and then right by the bagby exit u see the big blue lights comin from under the freeway for the bayouwalk.
  4. Williams Tower - formerly known as Transco Tower Height: 901 feet 64 stories Circa: 1983 Architects: Johnson Burgee and Morris Aubry Facts - Then Transco Tower became Williams Tower when Transco Energy was bought out by Williams Energy Corp. in 1999 - Tallest building outside of any CBD - Rotating beacon at night on roof every 15 seconds - Williams Tower functions as two 32-floor towers stacked on top of each other, complete with separate lobbies, elevators, and garages. - South of the building is a 3-acre park with a large fountain called the "Waterwall" (aka Transco Fountain), designed by the building's architects with Richard Fitzgerald & Partners. The fountain is a stunning work of hydraulic engineering. - The top of the building features a beacon that sweeps the night sky over the Galleria area. - Construction took only 16 months, a remarkably short time for a tower of such height. 2 Pics by Patrick Benders Next four Pics by Mancuso Former

  6. While looking through arch daily the other day I saw that they posted a great article on available architecture lectures. Some very old and some very new. One I found particularly interesting was this Architecture Now series. A treasure trove of interviews with some of the great architects from the late modernist and early post-modernist period are in this series from Robert Venturi, to Frank Gehry, Richard Meier, and even Philip Johnson. I would recommend for any one curious about some of these great architects to go watch these. This one posted below is of Philip Johnson and is probably the best of them. The period in which these were done were late 70's and into the mid 1980's. A like to the playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL1BE07F5A489CB43F&spfreload=10
