Waverly Goodbye

1 Waverly Court, by Glassman Shoemake Maldonado Architects

From the design mags to demolition . . . in less than ten years! Remember the modern house with the curious metal proboscis off Bissonnet, near the Museum of Fine Arts? It won a couple of design awards a few years back from the American Institute of Architects, but if the judges had realized it was temporary housing it probably would have swept that category.

A week ago 1 Waverly Ct. appeared quietly in our demolition report, but it became a smashing success just a few days later. It was built in 1999.

After the jump, what lurked behind the proboscis: photos of this record-shattering short-timer from the architects’ website.
