Overview
Founded in 1836, Houston is now the country s fourth-largest city. In the early 20th century, Houston s economy shifted from agriculture to oil, fueling the city s explosive growth in the following decades. Houston grabbed the reins and saw a building boom in commercial, residential, and civic architecture redefine the city and skyline. Modernism was a new and fresh architectural expression and the perfect complement to the city s can-do entrepreneurial spirit. The 1960s brought ground-breaking ceremonies for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration s (NASA) headquarters, while residents and tourists alike lined up to tour the revolutionary new Astrodome. Building Modern Houston tells the story of Houston s architecture during its transformation from Bayou City to Space City. "
