“Elsewhere, Texas” is a small show, mostly just color photos of 23 projects around the state from the past decade. But in his review, Jerome Weeks says ‘small’ is part of the point. These are not big-ego, big-ticket projects. But they point to what may be our future.
Watch David Dillon on the role of architecture critic, and the importance of newspapers. The interview excerpts with Dillon, who died yesterday, were shot for Stop the Presses, a documentary by Mark Birnbaum and Manny Mendoza.
The Italian architect has now designed three of Texas’ leading art museums: the Nasher in Dallas, the Menil in Houston and the Kimbell expansion in Fort Worth. All three, he says, are a legacy of his work with his ‘master’ — original Kimbell architect Louis Kahn.

Architect Joshua Prince-Ramus met with the media and the public last week — and then answered our questions about why the Wyly Theatre’s interior has only one bright color, how “low-tech” the Wyly actually is and what happened to his relationship with his mentor, Rem Koolhaas.
The four renowned architects behind the Winspear Opera House and the Wyly Theatre — two of them Pritzker Prize-laureates — are in town meeting the public and answering questions: Why the red?
