The Melrose Building: Rehabilitation of a Modern Houston Landmark

August 24, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm EDT

Free – $5

The skyline of downtown Houston is an ever-evolving mixture of buildings spanning the 20th and 21st centuries. As modernist architecture began to appear in the city, the 1952 Melrose Building – completed in the same year as the Gulf freeway – was Houston’s first office tower to fully exhibit the International Style. Now this modern landmark is undergoing rehabilitation for reuse as a hotel. For this Building Arts Lecture, Anna Mod will discuss the Melrose Building’s rehabilitation and the advent of the International Style in Houston.

Presented by Anna Mod
