Houston MODern Market 2012 begins Wednesday with a talk about noted architect Howard Barnstone presented by Stephen Fox. The event will be held February 22nd, 6:30 PM, at ArCH, 315 Capitol Street. Refreshments to follow the presentation. Free Admission. Howard Barnstone: The Paradoxes of Modern Practice Howard Barnstone was Houston’s most publicized modern architect of the 1950s and ‘60s. A prolific designer, professor of architecture at the University of Houston, and author of two seminal books, The Galveston That Was (1966) and The Architecture of John F. Staub: Houston and the South (1979), Barnstone was at various times in partnership with Preston M. Bolton and Eugene Aubry. Barnstone’s productive career, his influence on several generations of students at the University of Houston, and his impact on Houston’s cultural scene make him one of the most compelling figures in the history of twentieth-century architecture in Houston. Stephen Fox is an architectural historian and a fellow of the Anchorage Foundation of Texas. He is an adjunct lecturer in architecture at Rice University and The University of Houston, and author of The Campus Guide: Rice University, The Houston Architectural Guide, and The Galveston Architecture Guidebook. Fox has been described by The Houston Chronicle as, "a sort of unofficial collective conscience for the city..."
