A few weeks ago a few friends and I embarked on our first trip to the mountains of Big Bend. We camped out under the stars in the Chisos Basin and took in some of the most beautiful landscape I’ve ever seen. From the “party rock” as it became known we watched bears wander around the slopes by day, gazed through The Window as the sun set behind the mountains, and by night we searched the skies for constellations, satellites and shooting stars.

In honor of Lake Flato’s thirtieth anniversary, the Thirty Projects x Thirty Years series has been developed to explore and celebrate the firm’s history and culture of design. Published weekly, the series will highlight one project per year, starting in 1984 and ending in 2014.  The projects that have been selected will give you a snapshot of the firm’s evolution as well as provide a fun and insightful collection on then and now, and ultimately, who we are today.

Field Report: Epoch Ascension Winery

In a mad dash to meet 2014 harvest this August (that’s this month), the progress of construction on the Epoch Ascension Winery has been nothing but fast and furious, with no compromise to a mighty fine level of craftsmanship.  The new winery compound nestles into a hilly site covered in live oak trees; a series of galvanized steel-framed pavilions prominently stand in the foreground while a subterranean level of concrete barrel aging rooms lies under the hillside.

Clay

Clay has a calm, quiet demeanor and a slow southern way of speaking that puts you at ease and leads you to believe he is much wiser than your typical 22 year old. And indeed he is. Clay is really good at asking questions. He has a passion for learning about how buildings are constructed, how drawing sets are organized, what clients are like, and anything else related to the profession of architecture.
