The essays on this site are the culmination of a semester-long exploration of writing, architecture, and the city. Each student writer spent time considering the city in its many forms. These writings are the product of seven individual journeys, probing the vagaries of the city: its anonymity and community, its history and modernity, its decay and growth. They tear apart and then stitch the city back together as a place of personal experience and history. They are Houston [un]mapped.
