Architecture for the Arts: De Santos & Sicardi GalleriesArchitecture for the Arts: The De Santos & Sicardi Galleries 


Architecture for the Arts - De Santos & Sicardi Galleries is a unique book that details the thinking and design process behind two, multiple award-winning and frequently published, commercial art galleries. This book explores the numerous counterpoints between the two projects, their relevance as part of Houston's distinctive architectual landscape, and the architect's commitment to creating spaces to view and celebrate art. This volume also explores the relationship between the permanent and the temporary, the built and the displayed, the design process and the buildings' function: a true voyage into the poetry that starts with early design concepts and continues through the use of these two celebrated projects.
