Houston: Uncommon Modern is a preservation minded project that documents, analyzes and celebrates our city’s abundance of secondary and tertiary midcentury buildings hidden in full sight.
An exhibit featuring 100+ photos will be on view at Architecture Center Houston November 24, 2015 – February 12, 2016. Churches, office buildings, business parks, donut shops, schools and gas stations show off the design and materials of these overlooked architectural resources of Houston’s sprawling and often underappreciated cityscape.
A catalog will be released in February 2016 detailing the more than 400 unique sites identified by the research team and text exploring the history and context of this architecture in Houston.
This exhibit is curated by Delaney Harris-Finch and Anna Mod.
