This architectural and geological walking tour of downtown goes beyond the typical architectural focus to include the provenance and geology of the buildings' materials. These sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks have come from all over the world and now call Houston home. The tour is inspired by similar walks in Europe and adapted from the Houston Geological Society’s 1995 tour, Houston Building Stones.
