Three trees have been delivered and installed at the site of the still-under-construction Asia Society Texas Center on Southmore and Caroline in the Museum District, announces the reader who sent Swamplot this photo of the trucked-in foliage from last week (above) — as well as a view from over the weekend of greenery as it now appears in front (below). “The inside of the building has been lit at night lately and it is quite stunning,” reports our correspondent. The building — only the second U.S. design by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi, which follows his 2004 expansion of New York’s MOMA — isn’t scheduled to open until March of next year.
