9780813932552: Buildings of Texas: Central, South, and Gulf Coast (Buildings of the United States)

The architectural history of Texas spans more than 300 years of European settlement and 10,000 years of habitation by native peoples. The incredibly diverse natural landscape and equally varied built environment has produced an architectural heritage of national and international stature. This book, the first of two volumes devoted to the Lone Star State, covers the central, southern, and Gulf Coast regions (the earliest areas of Spanish and Anglo settlement and the majority of the counties that won independence from Mexico in 1836) and includes four major cities--Austin, Corpus Christi, Houston, and San Antonio. The authors consider the contributions made by various cultures--Native American, Spanish, Mexican, Anglo, African American, German, Czech, Polish, and Italian--to the state's rich architectural heritage. More than 1,000 building entries canvass the most important and representative examples of Spanish missions, log cabins, German stone houses, Victorian courthouses, Moderne stores, contemporary ranch houses, modern skyscrapers, postmodern retail strips, and incursions by internationally renowned architects. With the burgeoning interest in heritage tourism, this in-depth guide--enlivened by 351 illustrations and 50 maps--will satisfy the curiosity of both local and out-of-state visitors, bringing new energy to the state's promising preservation movement.

Review:

Thirteen years in the making, [Buildings of Texas] will be the first comprehensive survey of the state's built environment.... The 700-plus-page book presents architectural profiles of the region's major cities--Houston, Austin and San Antonio--then hits the road in search of the unique and unexpected.... The volume features more than 300 photos by Moorhead, a noted architectural photographer, historic photos, 350 illustrations and 50 maps.

(Houston Chronicle)

There is probably no one in Texas who is more obsessed with architecture than Gerald Moorhead, the Rice University lecturer in architecture and the architect laureate of Kazakhstan. Mr. Moorhead has been in the business of buildings for 40 years, as an architect and as an architectural journalist.

(New York Times)
