new Mexi-Arte museum?

According to an article in today's Austin American-Statesman, Mexi-Arte would like to build a pretty fab new museum on their Congress location (which must mean that they can tear down that building that used to house the "Union occupiers" after the South lost the war [which may be why they can tear that building down...]).

I'm not sure how practical this translucent concept is for Texas summers (and for art...), but it is rather gorgeous. Designed by Mexican architect Fernando Romero, the Mexi-Arte folks are trying to get the city to cough up $10 million for the building. That may prove harder than anything...
