现休斯顿艺术博物馆校园的建筑群是其博物馆艺术收藏中的一个重要组成部分。原来的1924年新古典主义的石料建筑规模适中，与赫曼公园（Hermann Park）成为一体。密斯·凡·德罗（Ludwig Mies van der Rohe）设计的法律大楼博物馆建筑通过透明玻璃与钢材形成了精巧的组合。由拉菲尔·莫内欧（Rafael Moneo）设计的Audrey Jones Beck大楼主要运用石材与街对面的法律大楼形成对比。

Miriam Sitz, "Steven Holl's Luminous Kinder Building at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston." Architectural Record, November 16, 2020 For Holl, the symbiotic relationship of the project to its urban context cements it as a highlight of his career. “It's not a standalone building,” he says. “It's a building that's about a campus.” As a literal beacon among the MFAH’s august grouping of structures, the Kinder graciously draws the public into the museum—then encourages them to see the collection, and the city beyond, in a new light.
Natilee Harren, "Better, Faster, Stronger, Kinder." Art Forum, December 17, 2020 In public remarks, director Gary Tinterow has emphasized the long view, remaining laser-focused on celebrating how the Steven Holl–designed expansion—“almost unparalleled in modern times”—nearly doubles the MFAH’s available exhibition space while also unifying an undeniably impressive fourteen-acre campus that includes two preexisting exhibition buildings, a Noguchi-designed sculpture garden, conservation lab, public plaza, and studio school (also a recent build by Steven Holl Architects).
