THE "HOLE HOUSE"

NOTE: DEMOLISHED 2005 - NOW ART LEAGUE HOUSTON BUILDING
Officially known as the "Inversion" project it was the work of two Houston sculptors Dan Havel and Dean Ruck who were offered the building to work with for a short period of time prior to its demolition to make way for a new Art League Houston building. An excerpt from the Art League Press Release at the time reads:
"Havel and Ruck will create a large funnel-like vortex beginning from the west wall adjacent to Montrose Blvd. The exterior skin of the houses will be peeled off and used to create the narrowing spiral as it progresses eastward through the small central hallway connecting the two buildings and exiting through a small hole into an adjacent courtyard."
Sadly no longer with us this work of art [or dangerous trans-dimensional vortex - whichever you prefer] will have to live on in pictures only.
