REX in their city

Architecture to transform the arts. What caught my attention is how REX (Ramus-Ella Architects) can revolutionize the arts through their building designs for arts spaces. Most of the REX architects, as well as their projects, were from OMA (Office of Metropolitan Architecture) New York, the North American office of the Rem Koolhas firm. Collaborative architecture over the starchitect? Now that's refreshing.

Take a look at two of their projects: the Museum Plaza in Louisville, Kentucky (expected completion 2011) and the Wyly Theater in Dallas, Texas (expected completion 2008).
Having a swimming pool in your gallery or easily changing your stage from proscenium to thrust to completely bare in a matter of minutes opens up an exciting range of possibilities.
