Houston’s Glassell School of Art – designed by Steven Holl Architects – is a cutting-edge institution offering studio-art courses, art-history instruction and various creative workshops for its well-rounded student community. The BBVA Compass Roof Garden and Brown Foundation Inc. Plaza help frame the unique L-shaped structure, which does well to serve the school’s eclectic mix of students.

Fixated with allowing natural light to penetrate all studios and classrooms, the design firm thought to construct the exterior base with alternating panels of precast concrete slabs and translucent glass panes, in a sense fostering the outside connection with the school’s environmental surroundings. Other notable features include a scenic walkable roofline and a spacious amphitheater, this on top of the challenging academic curriculum, of course.

In case you missed it earlier, here is a look inside the YEEZY studio in Calabasas.
