The Menil Collection in Houston, Texas, has been honored with the 2013 AIA Twenty-Five Year Award. Renzo Piano designed the museum to house Dominique de Menilâ€™s impressive collection of primitive African art and modern surrealist art in the heart of a residential neighborhood. The design respected Ms. de Menilâ€™s wish to make the museum appear â€œlarge from the inside and small from the outsideâ€ and to ensure the works could be viewed under natural lighting.
