ARCHITECTURAL HISTORIC STEPHEN FOX TO SPEAK AT THE BRENHAM HERITAGE MUSEUM CONFERENCE ON JULY 25
A famous architectural historian from Texas will speak this month in the next episode of the Brenham Heritage Museum’s Seth McMeans Lecture Series.
Stephen Fox’s talk, titled “A Journey through Texas: Interpreting a State through its Architecture,” will take place from 12-1 p.m. on Monday, July 25e. It will be held in the museum’s Julie & Larry Tegeler Gallery at the Bus Depot, located at 313 East Alamo Street.
Fox teaches and lectures at Rice University’s School of Architecture and is the author of numerous books and articles on historic architecture. He also teaches at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture at the University of Houston. He is widely regarded as the greatest authority on the 19e and 20e Texas buildings of the last century, and his work links architecture to societal uses.
