Ruby City Breaks Ground in Southtown

Alamo Architects is proud to play a leading role as the Architect of Record for Ruby City, a landmark contemporary art exhibition space that honors and fulfills the vision of the late arts patron, Linda Pace. The firm of Sir David Adjaye, the acclaimed architect who designed the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, is Ruby City’s Design Architect.  Irby Hightower and Mike McGlone of Alamo Architects joined project and community leaders: Foundation Trustees Kathryn Kanjo, Rick R. Moore, Alexa Person and Laura B. Wright; Joe Franchina from Adjaye Associates and other luminaries and key project contributors to break ground on the long-awaited contemporary arts gallery and sculpture garden, whose design was inspired by a dream of Ms. Pace.

The 14,000 sf, two story building is slated for completion in late 2018, timed to coincide with a year’s worth of celebrations for San Antonio’s 300th birthday. A public opening and inaugural exhibitions are planned for early 2019.
