 Volume: 28 |  Issue: 1 |  Download

ON THE COVER
On July 16, 2015 a tragic domestic terrorist attack on five military personnel occurred in Chattanooga, TN. In honor of the deceased, Houston artists Shane Albritton and Norman Lee of RE:site Studio designed the "Wreath of Honor" — featuring a palette of Texas limestone and Tennessee flagstone. The artwork and landscape was created to respectfully acknowledge the sacrifice of the Fallen Five and their families and to address both the tragic and heroic acts that occurred on that fatal date at the U.S. Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC). To learn more about the meaning of the memorial, as well as its stone construction, turn to the story beginning on page 30. Stone Suppliers/Fabricators: Escobedo Group, Austin, TX (Texas limestone); Majestic Stone, Chattanooga, TN (flagstone).

The goal? To be so quick, you make it seem like you were never there, he says.
