Texas Architect May/June 2007: San Antonio
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.
s t o r y c o v e r Sketches of San Antonio Taking the time to draw helps the artist remember “It all starts with a sketch,” says Joe Stubblefield, AIA. “The sketch is not precious, but rather the essential part of the creative process. The idea is conveyed in the sketch.” Stubblefield is one of many local architects who take considerable pleasure in drawing the often-missed corners of their hometown, some shown across these two pages. “Sketching is a way of remembering,” he says. “Sitting and drawing a place or space gives you a completely different sense of that place—you become part of the space for the time you’re there.” 30 t e x a s a r c h i t e c t
