I read somewhere that one of the tests for a city is if there were a city-wide protest or celebration, would everyone instinctively know where to go to participate. I'm pretty sure Houston fails this one.

Houston is quite unconventional in that sense. In addition all the significant clusters of high rises , downtown, Med Center, Uptown, Greenway Upper Kirby, soon Allen Parkway and Montrose , creates a diffuse urban feeling.

all we need now is our overly wide streets lined with trees so the Germans can march in the shade  :)

Excellent photo with the uptown skyline in the distance. Thanks for posting. Houston is looking more amazing every day.

I’ll imagine it made plenty of others on the job site nervous too!  Architects on here can probably attest to plenty of moments in their careers where they were reaffirmed in their choice to be the architect and not the builder.

Amazing how the Fondren Mansion which once seemed so massive now looks like a cute puppy at the feet of its masters.
