The wunderkind behind San Antonio’s $16-million-dollar, 14,000-square-foot Ruby City is British architect Sir David Adjaye, whose design credits include the Nobel Peace Centre in Oslo and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Denver. Opening October 13, the contemporary art center will house 900 paintings, sculptures, installations, and video works, many of them culled from the collection of late arts patron Linda Pace. Its first exhibition, Waking Dream, includes landmark pieces by international artists Do Ho Suh, Wangechi Mutu, and Cornelia Parker, as well as works by SATX-based artists Ethel Shipton and Cruz Ortiz.
