Helen Thompson and Casey Dunn will sign their new book Texas Made/Texas Modern as part of the Texas Book Festival. The festival is free and open to the public. In Texas modernist architecture, sleek European forms meet a gritty spirit that blends the vocabulary of the state’s ranching heritage with a new idiom. Take a tour across the state with Thompson and Dunn as they share beautiful examples of Texas made modern. Moderator: Jeanne Claire van Ryzin.
Texas Made/Texas Modern is a compelling survey of Texas houses that draw both on the heritage of pioneer ranches and on the twentieth-century design principles of modernism.
