Houston, Texas is an architecturally lawless city full of promise. The climate is harsh and the economy is based upon extreme pragmatism on the one hand and pure imagination on the other. Inspiration for innovation can be found easily in this landscape. Local industry is sophisticated, and is driven by medical research, space travel and energy exploration. Our goal is to find some sort of beauty from these ingredients and when possible, export them to the rest of the world.
