Fighting fire with fire, The Blaffer Art Museum at the University of Houston has hired prestigious WORK Architecture Company of New York to fix its awkward, already over-architected 70’s era university gallery space. The plan sounds promising: it includes a much-needed cafe and will make use of the art building’s vast, underused courtyard as an exhibition and performance venue. The museum will be closed between July and December 2011 and reopens in January 2012. It’s all part of the university’s push for "tier-one" status.
