Stabilization Project Begins On Ruins of Adobe Church

by: Stephen Sharpe

One of its two mud-brick towers already has crumbled into a heap of rubble, and the remaining adobe walls of its nave and surviving tower are in danger of imminent collapse. But the ruins of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Church still exhibit the impressive arched doorways that inspire admirers of adobe construction to venture far off the beaten path to this tiny borderland hamlet 30 miles upstream along the Rio Grande from Presidio.

Rural Fabric

by: Liz Axford

When asked about sources of inspiration for The Quilts of Gee’s Bend, which debuted at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston in the fall of 2002, the quiltmakers often cited their surroundings. In the current exhibit, Gee’s Bend: The Architecture of the Quilt, debuting once again at the MFAH, the curators have worked to make this connection more apparent.

Martel College at Rice University

by: Donna Kacmar

Michael Graves’ signature style also appears in another building recently completed in Houston. Martel College at Rice University (shown at left) exhibits similarities with the Federal Reserve, particularly in the treatment of Martel’s exterior where St. Joe brick is set in a “jumbo running-bond pattern” with precast concrete units used to mimic mortar. As with the Federal Reserve where he again played with the sense of scale on the facade, Graves was teamed with PGAL on the Rice project.
