Houston, Texas

Winner of the Keep Houston Beautiful Award, the plaza’s principal feature is the striking black granite “stele” rising out of a reflecting pool.

Set at the intersection of two major streets on the edge of Houston’s Museum District, the design has created a landmark drawing the eye into the university’s iconic campus.

Turner Duran was the Architect-of-Record for this project, with the design provided by the office of Phillip Johnson/Alan Ritchie.
