Building Houston Collection

We are pleased to announce Building Houston is now available in the UH Digital Library!

This collection is the result of a partnership between the William R. Jenkins Architecture and Art Library and the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects. It includes the oral histories of people who strongly impacted the built environment in the Houston Area. Architects, developers, scholars and philanthropists discuss their work, projects, and the influences that shaped Houston. Each subject is interviewed by an architect or architectural scholar who frames the discussion and provides context. The collection of oral histories is ongoing, so Building Houston's content will regularly expand to accommodate new subjects.

Many thanks to all those who helped make this digital collection possible. Make sure to check out our other audio collections including the Jagdish Mehra and Oral Histories from the Houston History Project collections here at the UH Digital Library
