Thirteen years in the making, [Buildings of Texas] will be the first comprehensive survey of the state's built environment.... The 700-plus-page book presents architectural profiles of the region's major cities--Houston, Austin and San Antonio--then hits the road in search of the unique and unexpected.... The volume features more than 300 photos by Moorhead, a noted architectural photographer, historic photos, 350 illustrations and 50 maps.
There is probably no one in Texas who is more obsessed with architecture than Gerald Moorhead, the Rice University lecturer in architecture and the architect laureate of Kazakhstan. Mr. Moorhead has been in the business of buildings for 40 years, as an architect and as an architectural journalist.
