Authors in Architecture 6


Recommended Posts

Hey all,

Here's a link to the Library event. Confirm your attendance if you have a profile on facebook.


ArchiTypes and the Houston Public Library are pleased to announce the sixth installment in our successful series, Authors in Architecture.

High Style in the Suburbs, the Early Modern Houses of William R. Jenkins, a book written by Jason A. Smith and published by Houston Mod brings eleven of William R. Jenkins’ early house designs into focus and documents many of his notable and innovative designs of the 1950s. The book includes vintage photos from when the houses were new and current photographs by Benjamin Hill.

During a career that spanned over 3 decades, Jenkins was a notable architect of both residential and commercial projects in a distinctly modern style. His work received acclaim from both the popular media and architectural scholars on a national level. His works were published in Better Homes and Gardens, House and Home, and Arts + Architecture.

Join us for the 6pm presentation and discussion at the Downtown Houston Public Library (500 McKinney) and then a book signing and reception at Architecture Center Houston (315 Capitol) at 7pm. While at ArCH, take a look at the exhibition Endangered Modern: The Real Story, also in conjunction with Houston Mod.

This monthly series is free and open to the public and generously supported by the Architecture Center Houston Foundation.
