Urban Embrace

As someone who lives directly above I-5, in all its ugliness and glory, I felt an instant kinship upon seeing photos of architect Ronnie Self's home. (Self chose to build in Houston's Third Ward, raising his house up one story from the ground but otherwise situating it directly adjacent to 20 lanes of traffic, with a – partially thanks to said traffic – expansive view of the downtown skyline.)
