The Buildings on Houston Mod

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I didn't keep track of all of them while I was putting them in, but there are some new additions on the Houston Mod website buildings section. Both Ben and I had a great time over the Thanksgiving break taking pictures and talking to people about their houses.

Most notably, I updated several in Briargrove and Memorial Bend (of course those are all well documented on Michael Brichford's website). I also added a few Lost Moderns.

If anyone is interested in adding buildings to the website, please let me know. We are planning a submission feature on the website at some point, but for now all you need to do is email us the information (architect, year built, address, neighborhood, summary of the history if you have it, and photo if you have it). After that the website committee will look at the submission to make sure it fits the criteria and put it up on the website to continue filling out the list. We are nowhere near done and every building helps. We are aware of some glaring omissions, but there are also plenty of buildings we don't even know about yet. It's just a matter of time and knowledge to get all of Houston's modern buildings their own little spot on the web.
