Well, the Austin Museum of Art has officially (for the second time in 25 years) scrapped its plans for a new building. The $64 million building designed by Richard Gluckman in the late 90s is no longer feasible, says director Dana Friis-Hansen. Some may recall a similar fallout in the late 80s, when a Robert Venturi-designed space fell by the wayside in the wake of the oil bust. The difference? Venturi was paid about $500,000; Gluckman got a cool $5 million.
