Out and About: Water Gardens

I had to go to Fort Worth this week for a sponsorship (I lived in Fort Worth for 5 years and have a real soft spot for that town) and was so happy to have to park right by the magnificent Fort Worth Water Gardens, designed by renowned Architect, Phillip Johnson.  If you are ever in "the Fort", you should go here.  It is a magical place in the shadow of downtown. . . the lines, textures, shadows, spaces are so serene.  I particularly found solace in the Quiet Pool space. . . lined by trees and water covered walls it was exponentially cooler (than the 103 degree temp) inside that space and I was transported.  I believe accessible design matters. . . design. matters.  This design moved me, among others passing through.  Love it.


  1. been dying to do a shoot here!! thank you for the reminder!

  2. oh you should! you would do amazing things there! maybe a Magill shoot?? :)
