Lone Star Mod: Midcentury Houston Architecture
As a post-World War II boomtown, Houston has an abundance of beautiful modernist architecture, yet the city is not celebrated outside the region for its stunning homes, sleek office buildings, churches, schools, banks, museums, hotels, and the Astrodome. Over the years, countless homes have been honored with Architectural Record magazine’s Record Houses distinction, and many national and regional American Institute of Architects awards have been bestowed on local buildings. The city has hosted a number of talented, inventive architects whose work is critically acclaimed albeit not well known by the general public. Lone Star Mod: Midcentury Houston Architecture intends to remind audiences of Houston’s great modernist tradition by profiling several premiere Houston modernist architects and their ideas and design process, and exploring the effects of Houston’s controversial lack of zoning on the preservation of many of these mid-century landmarks.
