Driving Through Houston

Yesterday, we drove through Houston.  The drive across the city is plenty long for the traveler to consider her trip.

Although Houston has attractions, mostly hidden away in neighborhoods, the general impression from the freeways is that the population would like to sell you stuff you really don’t need.  Architecture is the cheap, fast, commercial kind, even in buildings such as churches, whose designers ought to know better.

Here is how I envision the instructions for building Houston:
