Blaffer Art Museum Renovation Images

Fancy.

The University of Houston's Blaffer Art Museum recently unveiled artist renderings of their forthcoming renovation and they're yummy.

The project, spearheaded by New York architecture biz WORK Architecture Company (WORKac), will only add an additionally 500 square feet to the circa 1973 site. However, the building transformation will boast an impressive façade (as you can see) as well as a café and lounge.

The "pardon our dust" signs for the $2 million project are slated to appear from July to December before a grand re-opening in January 2012.
