I took a field trip recently to see David Adjaye‘s design for Ruby City, a new contemporary arts center in San Antonio, TX. The building doesn’t open to visitor’s until October so I was limited to getting photos of the exterior. And I got lost wandering the streets of San Antonio looking for lunch, so I missed ideal lighting for at least one key court-side view—but you get the idea. It’s a gorgeous place. I’m looking forward to a return visit to see the galleries and collection.
I got to take a road trip a few weeks ago to the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, TX by Morphosis. I highly recommend a visit – and I recommend leaving your tripod at home and actually taking time to look at the exhibits.
