Texas Architect Sept/Oct 2006: Design Awards
Texas Architect is the official publication of the Texas Society of Architects, each edition features recently completed projects and other editorial content largely written by AIA members in Texas. That collective participation was the basis of Texas Architect’s recognition by the national AIA with a 2010 Institute Honor for Collaborative Achievement.

Its east half contains a large covered porch with steel columns thrusting through circular ventilation holes in the roof. Atop the columns are large steel discs that shade the openings. A small catering kitchen with ser- vice windows faces the porch. The Pavilion’s west half houses restrooms wrapped in glazed concrete masonry and laminated glass. The milky-white glass walls maintain privacy while allowing ample natural light. These crisp materials provide for the essential component of easy cleaning and maintenance.
