This building in Boyle Heights is just gorgeous and further shows how east LA and Boyle heights are revitalizing and are getting newer construction.

Two new low rise structures are under construction in South Beach. One is Frank Gehry's New World Symphony Building just north of Lincoln Rd. The other is a mixed use Herzog & de Meuron (the Beijing Bird's Nest Stadium designers) mixed used, but mostly parking, structure on the corner of Lincoln Rd. and Alton Road. I look forward to both being completed.

As for other proposals for Texas, how about this concept design for an oil rig transformed into a resort hotel conceived by Morris Architects in Houston

I'm not sure when or if this will actually get built, but it's a great idea and hope it does.

Raleigh has a new expansion building for the North Carolina Museum of Art. The low slung building is austere and low key from the outside but I understand (from someone who got a sneak peak the other week) that the interior experience is outstanding. It will be open in the Spring and will house the permanent collection while the existing building becomes a venue for travelling exhibits. http://www.worldarchitecturenews.com...20internal.jpg

Also in Raleigh is the Green Square expansion of the state's Natural Sciences Museum. Right now, it's a "hole in the ground" downtown surrounded by a big fence.

We have a couple of low-levelers underway in our new Union Park area, adjacent to downtown Las Vegas.

Las Vegas Weekly : - Smith Center drama

The Smith center for the Perfoming Arts is no dazzler in this razzle-dazzle city but I believe it will be a welcome change from all the glitter. It will help to ground this city.
