Frank Lloyd Wright - I actually really like his Prarie houses even though they're from before your time period.

Le Corbusier - Monastery at La Tourette

Richard Neutra - His case study houses in California are awesome.

Mies Van De Rohe - Almost everything he did was solid.

Walter Gropius

Local to Houston:

William Floyd

William Jenkins

Harwood Taylor

MacKie & Kamrath - actually out Wrighted Wright in a few buildings, IMO

For me, some of the most interesting of this time period are Richard Neutra, John Lautner, Hal Levitt, Buff and Hensman, and Alvar Aalto. Locally I love Harwood Taylor and Howard Barnstone.

My personal favorite is R.M. Schindler

Nationally/Worldwide: Edward Durell Stone, Gordon Bunschaft

Locally: Howard Barnstone, Preston Bolton

Good taste! Bunshaft especially! The Georgica Pond House (now gone) was incredible. Lever House is my favorite high-rise in the U.S.
