Houston Mod ventures into the of preservation of newer modern architecture by featuring this handsome 1989 design by the noted Seattle architect Garrett Larsen. The design is a restrained postmodern style and reflects the owner’s  interest in Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater. Architectural historian Stephen Fox has provided a detailed description of the house and will attend Sunday’s event to discuss the design. Garrett Larsen is an architect in the Seattle area, based in Bainbridge Island, Washington. He is a graduate of the University of Washington and became a registered architect in 1975.

  Vintage modern houses are an uncommon find in West University Place yet here is one with nifty details and in great condition. Architect Matt E. Howard, Jr. designed this 1956 contemporary /modern style house.  Howard designed several of the most interesting buildings at Wharton County Junior College in Wharton, Texas. He also designed two houses in Meyerland built for the 1955 Parade of Homes located at 5114 and 5126 Jackwood. Matt E. Howard, Jr. was an award winning architect and national president of the Society of American Registered Architects in 1960 and a fellow of the organization.

The Mod Squad will be available Sunday to help renew memberships and provide Houston Mod publications.   We hope to see you at Mod of the Month!
