(Preview) Texas Architect July/August 2014: Art & Architecture
This is the preview version of Texas Architect July/August 2014 issue. From purpose-built museums and galleries to new white-box interiors for former warehouses, we take a look at the relationship between architecture and art as well as the significant role these buildings play by creating cultural nodes in their communities.
With the continued growth of the omnipresent foodie culture, restaurant design must speak to the chef’s culinary outlook as well as the overall branding goals of the company. The new restaurants and coffee shops in San Antonio’s rehabilitated Pearl Brewery all embrace the reuse ethos of the development throughout their spaces. Likewise, Uchi restaurants have maintained the high-design aesthetic of their Austin locations as they expand into Houston. PHOTO BY SCOTT MARTIN.
