The Dallas Architecture Forum will present a free Panel Discussion focused on the life of Houston Modernist architect Howard Barnstone as chronicled in the recently published monograph Making Houston Modern, a collection of essays which examines his life and legacy. His modernist designs and pioneering writings reshaped perceptions of the architecture of Texas. Barnstone worked closely with Philip Johnson on many of his Texas projects and was instrumental in the design of the Rothko Chapel. This important contribution and the perspective of Barnstone’s work is edited by “three renowned voices in the architecture world, (and) situates Barnstone within the contexts of American architecture, modernism, and Jewish culture to unravel the legacy of a charismatic personality whose imaginative work as an architect, author, teacher, and civic commentator helped redefine architecture in Texas.” Panel participants will include Moderator Kate Holliday, Michelangelo Sabatino, Robert Barnstone and Jeffery Lieber.
