  • James Turrell is interested in light. We were lucky enough to enjoy his light installation in northern Argentina a couple of years ago. So when we decided to visit Houston, this was a must see. The we...  more »
  • It is free, it is on a very pretty campus and especially good at sunset. I have not been for sunrise but understand that is awesome.  more »
  • Reserved space online for sunset sequencing. It's free but you must make a reservation. Didn't know what to expect - but found we wanted more. Think some peaceful music would have added to the experie...  more »

  • Soooo either I didn't do enough drugs to understand this... or it's a building with a square hole on top with lights that change colors every 5 mins.. that's it ..if this was for relaxation purposes then yes. Other than that no wow factor here !!
  • Love love love this experience. Poetic and community-oriented. Only problem I have is they haven't maintained the installation. Lots of rust and grime is piling up on the roof of the building which makes it look dingy. Other than that, I will always love to come here for some quiet in the bustling city. Pro-tip: You can park on campus with your flashers on. Or just take the rail in.
  • If you haven't checked this out once in your life, you should! The pictures are amazing. The vibe is suppose to help you feel zen-like and even for you to meditate, but sometimes parents bring their children that will occasionally run around and make noise. There is a student volunteer that is there to answer any questions and before the twilight begins, she gives a brief intro. You aren't suppose to take photos underneath the skyspace, but you are encouraged to photos of the lights changing once you've exited the skyspace.
  • One of my favorite places in Houston. Visit at sunset and the experience is very moving.
  • Liked the experience! Cool colors! Took some awesome pics!
