Architecture & Planning

The Architecture & Planning collections preserve the work of architects, designers, and others who have shaped the built environment of the Houston area. This rich group of materials documents the city’s growth, emphasizing the period after the Second World War when Houston became a center for modern architecture. The collections contain the papers and drawings of well-known architects and academics as well as architectural drawings of individual buildings and other records of interest.
