April 30, 2012 - PRLog -- When Houston architect Ken Harry partnered with Hines Development to imbue the lobby of Houston’s Chase Center with new life, he called on acclaimed glass artist Paul Housberg. The result is a public work of art, a striking installation composed of over 2,000 individual pieces of glass, and a lobby that seems to transcend the workaday world inviting visitors to linger.

For Housberg, whose innovative glass art graces hotels, corporate offices, healthcare facilities and civic buildings across the country, this project brought a welcome return to Texas. Previously, he had created a vibrant installation for Three Sugar Creek Center in Sugarland.

Housberg’s inspired use of color in his installation for the lobby of the Chase Center at 601 Travis results in a celebration of the public space. At once lush, vibrant and welcoming, Housberg’s inventive installation is composed of 215 tiles, each tile itself created from eight to ten individually cut pieces of glass. Amid its intense blues, hints of rust and grey echo the stone surrounding the installation. Its artistry infuses it with a timeless quality.
Notes Housberg, “A work of public art succeeds when it draws people in, making them pause for a moment, and causing them to feel more connected to their surroundings. Each of us responds deeply to color, texture and pattern; these three elements drive my work.”

Hailing from Jamestown, Rhode Island, Paul Housberg is a graduate of and has instructed at Rhode Island School of Design. He is recognized for his innovative approaches to working with glass as a medium for architectural art.
