Houston: Uncommon Modern is a preservation minded project that documents, analyzes, and celebrates Houston’s abundance of secondary and tertiary midcentury buildings hidden in full sight. The exhibit will feature 100+ photos of churches, office buildings, business parks, donut shops, schools, and gas stations, showing 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. Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through February 12, 2016.
