Discover the architectural riches of the Lone Star State when Preservation Houston's History in Print series presents author/photographer Gerald Moorhead and contributors Stephen Fox and Anna Mod discussing their landmark book, Buildings of Texas: Central, South and Gulf Coast. The 704-page volume provides an introduction to the development of the landscape and built environment of central and coastal Texas, outlines the region's geography and history, and examines how economic, geographic and social considerations shaped local architecture.
Buildings of Texas: Central, South and Gulf Coast is the 16th volume in the Buildings of the United States series. Developed under the auspices of the Society of Architectural Historians, Buildings of the United States will eventually encompass 60 volumes written by leading local and national scholars and heavily illustrated with photographs and maps.
After their presentation, the writers will sign copies of Buildings of Texas, which will be available for purchase at the event for $85 ($80 for Preservation Houston members).
The program will be held in Fondren Hall on the second floor of the Jones Youth Building.
