The Menil Drawing Institute

Vermont Quarries latest collaboration with Michael Van Valkenburgh Associates accentuates an intimate viewing garden for the Menil’s New Drawing Institute in Houston, Texas. A series of white marble blocks punctuate a serine courtyard; the marble was intentionally cut at its natural cleavage to reveal the stone’s inherent beauty, much like the works on paper on display in the museum’s new addition.


Architects Sharon Johnston and Mark Lee of Johnston Marklee describe their vision and inspiration for the Menil Drawing Institute drawn in part from the Menil Collection’s rich history.
