LBJ Library and Museum
Architexas provided a restoration master plan and preservation architectural services for the exterior restoration of the Lyndon Baines Johnson Presidential Library and Museum (LBJ Library and Museum) building and its surrounding plaza plinth walls at the University of Texas campus in Austin. Architexas worked with a team of experts in the rehabilitation of the Library and Museum’s Plaza.
As Historic Preservation Architects for the LBJ Library and Museum, Architexas’ work included assessing the integrity and condition of the structure’s stone veneer and working with consultants to study the substructure, material properties and drainage of the stone pavers. Architexas was also responsible for preparation of the construction documents and construction administration for the restoration of the Museum and Library’s exterior and surrounding plaza plinth walls. This work included masonry cleaning, replacing incompatible patches, repairing cracked and spalled stones, replacing flashing and sealants, reworking flashing and weep system below terraces, and repairing water damage at soffits.
