Upon traveling to Texas

This month I travelled to Texas.  Though heat index was a rising terror here, driving on the highways  was "one cool ride"- kind of an experience. Transportation infrastructure of much of the Texan cities is impressive & explicitly well connected.

I was in Dallas & Fort Worth where I visited works of Kahn, Koolhaas, Ando, Foster, Renzo Piano & Philip Johnson.

And sometimes a picture is worth a thousand words. So here I am sharing my personal favourite.
Kimbell Art Museum, Louis Kahn, Fort Worth TX
“All material in nature, 
the mountains and the streams and the air and we, 
are made of Light which has been spent, 
and this crumpled mass called material casts a shadow, 
and the shadow belongs to Light." - Louis Kahn
