Texas Southmost College (TSC) presents the "Houston: Uncommon Modern" photo exhibit by the American Institute of Architects (AIA). The exhibit opens on Tuesday, March 28, 2017 at 10 a.m. with an opening reception and presentation by preservation leader and author Anna Mod.
The exhibit, featuring over 100 photographs, will be on display at the TSC ITEC Center, located at 301 Mexico Blvd. in Brownsville, from March 28 through April 28, 2017, during the hours of 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is free and open to the public.
"Houston: Uncommon Modern" is a preservation minded project that documents, analyzes and celebrates Houston's abundance of secondary and tertiary midcentury buildings hidden in plain sight. Churches, office buildings, business parks, donut shops, schools and gas stations show off the design and materials of these overlooked architectural resources of Houston's sprawling and often underappreciated cityscape.
The exhibit also displays Houston's transformation from the "Bayou City" to "Space City" in the three decades following World War II.
Documentation and Conservation of the Modern Movement US (Docomomo) honored this exhibit with the 2016 Modernism in America Award, describing the selections as "exemplary of the efforts going on all over the country as the awareness of the importance to advocate, restore and celebrate the architecture, landscapes and typologies of postwar society in the United States."
The exhibit is sponsored by TSC, Houston Mod and RGV Mod.
