The City of Houston, Texas is not defined by one solitary style of architecture. It is a diverse and complicated aesthetic medley of intertwining styles and building techniques that represent the city's diverse culture.
Houston has the third largest skyline in the United States allowing for massive skyscrapers to blend in with mid-sized office building stepping down to modest homes. As one drives along one of the many freeways which crisscross the landscape, the diverse architectural styles blend into each other. The styles from Classical Revival, Colonial Revival, Victorian, Craftsman, Art Deco, Modern, and Post-Modern define the diverse cultural background of the city.
The style-savvy residents of the country's fourth-largest city and third-largest county (Harris) know that there is no place quite like Houston.
