Profile

Stephen Fox is an architectural historian and a lecturer at the Rice School of Architecture.  He is also a lecturer at the Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture of the University of Houston and a Fellow of the Anchorage Foundation of Texas. Fox’s work is focused on architecture of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, especially the architecture of Houston and Texas.  In his scholarship he examines the ways that architecture engages such social constructs as class identity, cultural distinction, and regional differentiation.

Fox is the author of The Country Houses of John F. Staub (2007), Rice University: An Architectural Tour in Princeton Architectural Press’s Campus Guide series (2001), and the Houston Architectural Guide (1999). He has contributed to Art and Activism: Projects of John and Dominique de Menil (2010, edited by Josef Helfenstein and Laureen Schipsi), Gwathmey Siegel: Inspiration and Transformation, (2009, edited by Douglas Sprunt), Rienzi: European Decorative Arts and Paintings (2008, edited by Katherine S. Howe), and Architectural Regionalism: Collected Writings on Place, Identity, Modernity, and Tradition (2007, edited by Vincent B. Canizaro).
