Texas Children’s Hospital At 1101 Bates Ave.


Recommended Posts

Texas Children’s Hospital located at 1101 Bates Avenue. Designed by Milton Foy Martin, was three-stories tall with a four-story section above the main entry. The long north-south elevations were distinguished by the consistent use of overhanging, flared aluminum fins that served as solar shades for the patient rooms. The short-end elevations were solid brick. In 1955, the building won a design award from the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, as well as a national design award from the AIA.
