This course will explore the vision and impact of one of Houston's best-known twentieth-century architects, John F. Staub. At the lunch, Emily Neff, curator of American paintings and sculpture at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will discuss Ima and Will Hogg, patrons and collectors who incorporated architecture in their effort to establish a Houston style. Stephen Fox, architectural historian, will explain how Staub's residential architecture fulfilled and expanded the Hoggs' aspirations for Houston. After lunch we will visit an exceptional country house designed by Staub. In the second tour we will visit four houses designed by John Staub in Broadacres and River Oaks.
