“BRAVE / ARCHITECTURE’s current body of work is epitomized by these two projects. They mark the beginning and end of a ten-year search for modern classicism through the use of minimal compositional elements, and the return to basic materiality.”

Architecture for the Arts – De Santos & Sicardi Galleries is a unique book that details the thinking and design process behind two, multiple award-winning and frequently published, commercial art galleries. This book explores the numerous counterpoints between the two projects, their relevance as part of Houston’s distinctive architectural landscape, and the architect’s commitment to creating space to view and celebrate art.

This volume also explores the relationship between the permanent and the temporary, the built and the displayed, the design process and the buildings’ function: a true voyage into the poetry that starts with early design concepts and continues through the use of these two celebrated projects.
