The Architect’s Newspaper Has a Look at Museum Tower

A San Francisco-based FrontBurnervian points us to this story in the Architect’s Newspaper about the under-construction Museum Tower. Two things about that: 1) the story says the building is “the final piece of that puzzle [in the Arts District], providing much-needed residential space.” With all due respect to the 500-foot “shaft of light” (as its architect, Scott Johnson, calls it), I think we can all agree that the Arts District is a puzzle that we’ll still be assembling many years after the first tenant has moved into Museum Tower. Like, for instance, how about that eyesore of a parking garage between the Cathedral and the Wyly? And 2) I’m still curious to see how the “cul-de-sac in the sky” (as Patrick Kennedy has called it) will affect the Nasher, specifically the Tending, (Blue) installation.
