James Turrell’s Twilight Epiphany sky space:
Located adjacent to the Shepherd School of Music on the Rice University campus, is the Suzanne Deal Booth Centennial Pavilion, James Turrell’s Twilight Epiphany skyspace. The pyramidal structure accommodates 120 people between two levels. Twilight Epiphany is acoustically engineered to host musical performances and to act as a laboratory for music school students. Constructed of grass, concrete, stone and composite steel, the structure is equipped with an LED light sequence that projects onto the ceiling and through an aperture in the 72-foot square knife-edge roof just before sunrise and at sunset.
The Downtown staple was built in 1911 as the Union National Bank Building – one of the country’s earliest steel and concrete skyscrapers – and restored as a hotel in 2004, the 12-story Hotel Icon is a beacon for patrons with an appreciation for architecture. It represents the neo-classical period with intricately carved exterior Corinthian columns and soaring 30-foot Doric interior columns (not to mention impressive decorative plaster molding). The hotel once housed architect John Staub, who designed local landmarks Rienzi and Bayou Bend. Other notable tenants included Jesse H. Jones, Texas’ first investment banking firm Neuhaus & Co. and international construction company Brown and Root.
