Mark Lamster: Back to the Future: Revisiting the House of the Century
Tuesday, September 13 at 7:30pm EDT/6:30pm CDT

When it was built near Angleton in the early 1970s, the House of the Century was a vision of the future. Avant-garde San Francisco collective Ant Farm gave the curvy concrete structure a Plexiglas entrance tunnel, porthole windows, padded walls and transparent plumbing.

The nearby Brazos River flooded the property in 1985, ruining the home’s interiors, and today the House of the Century is a vine-covered shell. Should the house be restored or left to rot, moved or replicated?

Join Preservation Houston and author, architecture critic and professor Mark Lamster for an online program at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, September 13, exploring the story of the House of the Century and how this unique building might be saved. A Q&A with Lamster will follow the presentation.

Access to this program is free for members of Preservation Houston/Pier & Beam, Houston Mod and the Society for Commercial Archaeology; registration is $10 for non-members. Advance registration is required. Sign up by 2pm Tuesday, September 13.

Presented in association with the Preservation Houston/Pier & Beam and Houston Mod.
