Johnson Hall

Johnson Hall - Austin, Texas

Johnson Hall – Austin, Texas

I gave a glimpse of Johnson Hall yesterday, and here’s the northern elevation. The fully renovated former Post Office and University of Texas building date back to 1914, now part of the Indeed Tower development.

As skyscrapers go, the Indeed tower has more character than most — with bold diagonal and tapering elements. The modern lobby’s proximity to this classic architecture gives a yin and yang contrast.

The minimalist park adds a third delightful element to this project. The space is large enough that I struggled to capture its entire width. I opted instead to frame Johnson Hall between the two trees. A striking lit sculpture was hard to incorporate from this perspective. I will show that tomorrow from a different angle.
