Watch our interview with Professor Fox on the origins of public housing in Texas.
A number of years ago Karen Paup and I set out to document the development of public housing in Texas. This material and more that I will present in future entries are from that project.
Few people can explain why public housing in Texas came to be built as long rows of two story brick apartments. To find out we talked to Professor Stephen Fox of Rice University. Professor Fox is an expert of the history and architecture of public housing.
