Big congratulations to Jerome Weeks! The Texas Society of Architects has honored him with the John G. Flowers Award for Excellence.
The award recognizes Jerome’s ongoing coverage of all facets of architecture and design. From one of the the nominating letters:
Because it is such a complex discipline, such a pervasive presence in contemporary urban life, architecture has particularly benefited from the Art&Seek team’s multi-faceted interest. They have educated the general public about our local accomplishments in design and urban planning – through sound, through video, through thoughtful online analysis. They have even prompted discussion within the architectural community. Weeks’ enthusiastic and knowledgeable approach to design has proven valuable in conveying vividly, to a wide audience, architecture’s significance – without stinting on its complexity
Some of Jerome’s work the judges reviewed:
A review of the Nasher’s exhibition of Winspear architects Foster + Partners’ work.
The architecture and planning behind car dealerships.
A wide ranging look at use of neon on buildings.
Designing and installing the red glass at Winspear Opera House
Designing and installing the Winspear chandelier
Think TV interview with theater designer Richard Pilbrow
Think TV interview with Brent Brown about city planning in West Dallas:
Did we mention that last month, Jerome also won the D Magazine Best of Big D Readers Choice award for Best Critic?
So he is both a popular and critical favorite. Plus, he’s a rarity — having already earned state-wide awards as a theater critic and book columnist. Stephen and I are feeling quite lucky Jerome still agrees to sit next to us.
