ARCHITECTURE By Candice Cowin and Catherine D. Anspon. Photography Heather Robards. T hree evenings and one afternoon with five speakers on topics of design and architecture showcased stunning projects in the countryside. Barn talks and book signings with Bill Curtis, Curtis & Windham Architects, Houston, co-hosted by ICAA (Institute of Classical Architecture & Art); San Antonio-based architect Ted Flato of Lake | Flato; Brooke and Steve Giannetti, Giannetti Home and Patina Farm, in from Ojai, California; and Brady Mathews of Sojourn Design House, Austin, packed The Halles VIP pavilion with decorators, architects, and antiques-show shoppers. The crowd listened intently to discussion of Curtis' nearby historic farmhouse (recently featured in PaperCity and Round Top magazines), as well as those for clients in Fayette, Washington, and Austin counties; and Lake | Flato's philosophy for architecture rooted in place and for designing homes in serene dialogue with the natural environment. The talk with the Giannettis included a harrowing narrative of escaping a wildfire near Ojai, and inspiring dish about what's next — an expansion of their dwelling empire into Thompson's Station, Tennessee, with the creation of Patina Meadow, featuring a 150-year-old log home. Mathews wrapped the series sharing many of his designs for lakeside retreats across America, emphasizing his use of art in interiors, a talk sponsored by exhibitor West Chelsea Contemporary.
