ANADARKO HEADQUARTERS // THE WOODLANDS / TEXAS
       
     
ANADARKO HEADQUARTERS // THE WOODLANDS / TEXAS

BUFFALO BAYOU // HOUSTON / TEXAS

A FOGGY MORNING STARTED TO BURN OFF BUT NOT BEFORE THIS DRAMATIC SCENE UNFOLDED ALONG BUFFALO BAYOU. JUST A FEW MONTHS POST-HARVEY, THE BAYOU WAS STILL IN THE EARLY STAGES OF RECOVERY.

PENNZOIL PLACE // HOUSTON /TEXAS
       
     
PENNZOIL PLACE // HOUSTON /TEXAS

ONE OF PHILLIP JOHNSON'S MOST CELEBRATED ARCHITECTURAL DESIGNS, PENNZOIL PLACE WAS AWARDED 'BUILDING OF THE DECADE' IN 1975. TODAY, THIS POSTMODERN TRAILBLAZER IS SURROUNDED BY TALLER STRUCTURES, BUT STILL MANAGES TO BE A HEAD TURNER FOR HOUSTONIANS AND VISITORS ALIKE.

1001 LOUISIANA // HOUSTON / TEXAS

HOME TO COMPANIES SUCH AS KINDER MORGAN AND EL PASO ENERGY, I’VE ALWAYS ENJOYED THE GEOMETRIC REPETITION OF THIS BUILDING. WHEN THE SUN IS SETTING IN EARLY WINTER, YOU GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO CATCH LIGHTING LIKE THIS ALL DOWN LOUISIANA STREET.

THE GROVE // HOUSTON / TEXAS
       
     
THE GROVE // HOUSTON / TEXAS

THE ONLY RESTAURANT LOCATED WITHIN DOWNTOWN’S DISCOVERY GREEN, THE GROVE SURE HAS SOME GREAT CURB APPEAL. THE ALL GLASS EXTERIOR ALLOWS YOU TO SEE THE WONDERFUL SETTINGS YOU WILL EXPERIENCE IF YOU MAKE YOUR WAY IN FOR A MEAL.
