Ice, Ice, Baby.

We've joked that our film series is jinxed. On previous nights, we've had tornado warnings and freak power outages. Well...it's the ice and snow that have foiled us this time.

What Can Dallas Learn from Charles Renfro?

It was great to see Rice architecture grad Charles Renfro back in Texas for the Nasher Sculpture Center’s 360 Lecture Series this past Saturday. Renfro, the third in the triumvirate of Diller Scofidio + Renfro talked on current and past projects, including the just-unveiled Broad Art Museum in Los Angeles.

Local Construction Update

We’re surrounded by construction here at the Center. The deck park (aka our soon-to-be front lawn) and Museum Tower both have cranes up within view of our front door.

We thought we’d update you a couple of other construction projects going on around town.
