Merry Christmas, Houston

Six pairs of massive arches, mirror finish.  Each set 700 feet apart, like a promenade down Post Oak.  In 1995, this became more than just the Galleria--as if that wasn't enough.  It became "Uptown Houston."  New, matching street lights and traffic signals.  Giant, circular "gateway rings" hovering at the bigger intersections, suspended 55 feet in the air.  

Modern.  Brash.  And adorned for Christmas. Stainless steel, frankincense and myrrh.

Looking down Post Oak, with Neiman Marcus and Transco in the background.

Merry Christmas, Houston.
