The Sally Walsh Lecture with Architect and Designer Petra Blaisse
The lecture is dedicated to the memory of distinguished Houston interior designer Sally Walsh, who is widely credited with bringing modern design to Houston. The lecture honors Walsh’s groundbreaking foray into modern design by bringing cutting edge designers to Houston. This year’s lecturer is Petra Blaisse, who will give a talk entitled “Shifting Positons.”
Blaisse began her career as a freelance designer and won distinction for her installations of architectural work. Gradually, her focus shifted to the use of textiles, light, and finishes in interior space and, at the same time, to the design of gardens and landscapes. In 1991, she founded Inside Outside. The studio works in a multitude of creative areas, including textile, landscape and exhibition design.
