    Posted by on 5/10/13 at 08:00am

    If you are in Houston, make sure you make the trip over to Rice University’s campus for James Turrell’s Twilight Epiphany Skyspace. I was fortunate enough to make it over while visiting Houston on a project visit and was able to capture some of the show and see the structure’s design, which was quite fantastic. The architects were Thomas Phifer and Partners in conjunction with James Turrell and Linebeck. I encourage any interested to reserve a spot through the website. Click to Read More
