Stephen Fox and Pino Shah will present their new book, Architecture of the Lower Rio Grande Valley: An Introduction, followed by a Q&A session. Through photographs, this book celebrates the architecture of the Texas-Mexico border region, its craftsmen, its cultures and its climate.

The architectural images by Pino Shah provide a journey through 160 years of history and heritage, revealing the border’s built environment as filtered through diverse cultures: Mexican, Spanish, American, German, and French. The photographs highlight the distinctive styles - Spanish and Mexican Colonial, border brick, Mid-century Modern, Pan American and 21st Century - found in the southernmost region of Texas. These architecturally significant buildings are often culturally and historically significant as well.
