Houston lives the life: Modern houses in the suburbs, 1952--1962
Master of Architecture
From 1952 to 1962 it seemed that modern houses might become the standard choice for middle class suburban housing in Houston. This is apparent from a survey of architectural articles in the local newspapers and the national press. Of these houses, twenty three were given special attention. From an examination of this group of modern houses, all built in the newer, outlying subdivisions, an understanding of the attitudes Houstonians had towards the postwar suburban city is apparent.
