New Building Houston recordings online

General Announcements, New Resource, New Service

The Architecture, Design and Art Library has developed an online collection of interviews called Building Houston, which documents the oral history of Houston’s built environment, as told by the people who impacted it.  Architects, developers, planners, scholars, philanthropists, and community leaders discuss their work and its relationship to Houston’s urban fabric in this online collection.  Each subject is interviewed by a scholar or colleague who frames the discussion and provides context.  Ten recordings made earlier this year are now available in the UH Libraries’ audio/video repository.  Click on the link to see interviews with Leslie K. Elkins, Natalye Appel, James B. Thomas and others.
