Fans of Modern architecture flocked to Texas this March for the second annual Docomomo US National Symposium. The symposium, which took place at the Philip Johnson-designed University of St. Thomas, examined Modernism's legacy and considered its future in Houston and throughout the country. The conference was co-hosted by our friends at Houston Mod.
