01.19.12 | O'Keeffe Playhouse begins to take shape

Here is the first look at the how the O'Keeffe Playhouse is coming to life. The original design was intended to be stucco applied over straw bale to demonstrate a green build concept. However, this method was scrapped in order to allow the sub-structure to be pre-fabricated in a warehouse, then shipped to the site. Gunite will be apllied next, and hand troweled to achieve a stuccoed finish.

12.27.11 | Symmetry Architects at the Dallas Arboretum | 2012 Dallas Blooms Festival

Here is my concept sketch for the Georgia O'Keeffe Playhouse, which is to be built by Hoebeke Custom Homes for the Dallas Arboretum next year. The O'Keeffe Playhouse will be on display during the 2012 Dallas Blooms, which opens on March 01 and continues through November, along with other playhouses inspired by Monet, Picasso, and Suerat. The garden exhibit will also feature extraordinary glass sculptures by Dale Chihuly. www.chihuly.com

It is a special honor for me to be one of four architects selected to create a playhouse design, and I can hardly wait to see the exhibit.
