David Adjaye, Ruby City art center in San Antonio (Texas)

 
Designed by the British practice of David Adjaye in collaboration with the Texan firm Alamo Architects, this museum will harbor the Linda Pace Foundation’s permanent collection of contemporary art, which features works of Olafur Eliasson, Thomas Demand, and Antony Gormley. The design is based on a sketch of a  ruby city that appeared in a dream of the artist, art collector, and philanthropist Linda Pace, who died in 2007. The faceted exterior is wrapped in a skin of red-toned precast concrete panels that shimmer because of an aggregate of glass and mica. The 1,300-square-meter building presents an irregular roof perforated by skylights. Ruby City will open to the public in October 2019.
