4 Inspiration Sunday...


This week's inspiration is Tadao Ando's Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.

This is a building that is near and dear to my heart. I lived in Fort Worth for the first 18 years of my life. Over the years I spent lots of time in the Cultural District, at the Kimbell or the theaters. I remember being so excited about the design and construction of the new modern. It came at a great time, just before I went to Architecture School. I ended up doing my thesis project focusing on a community art center in the Cultural District, meaning that I have analyzed every aspect of the area time and time again. The Modern was by far the most influential factor in my design and thought process. I try to make a point to visit whenever I am in Texas. It was wonderful to be there with some of my most favorite people {lulu, mom, and gram.}
