Iconic Architecture and History

For decades, the mid-century modernist building, situated across the street from Houston Methodist and Texas Children’s Hospital, was home to some of the most innovative thinkers and doers in the medical field. Designed by international design luminaire Gordon Bunshaft of Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM), he drew inspiration for the Medical Towers building from NYC’s famed Lever House, giving the Medical Towers its own twist that would eventually be known as the International Style of architecture.
