Swamplot, the ever-intriguing monitor of all Houston building, relates a comment by Josef Helfenstein about the Menil’s new campus plan, and I’m relating it to you. The Menil director is quoted in Cite, as saying that "The blocks along Richmond could become more dense than the other parts of the campus and serve as a buffer. The Dan Flavin installation – it was the last big piece done while Dominique was still here and Flavin’s last commission before he died – could become a gateway to the North. I actually think, if we do things right, Richmond Hall could help us to eventually integrate commercial development that has high standards with the artistic program we have in mind."
