Categories of mid-century architecture

Postby txmod » Wed Jun 02, 2010 2:27 pm

My neighborhood is in the process of applying for Historic District designation. One of the parts of the process was photographing all 1,256 homes, which has been done. We also have to list the architectural styles for each. With 1,256 houses I don't want to split hairs too darn much, but what are some of the categories you all would suggest. The homes run the gamut of 50's styles. Obviously mid-century modern, there are traditional, what I would call more modern ranches, Cinderella ranches, some tudor style. Beyond the most obvious are there any other categories you can think of?

I know Dallas has a lot of 'transitional ranches' and would think Houston probably does as well. Transitional Ranches are somewhat of a soft contemporary and kind of a cross between a modern and a traditional. In other words, good lines but not as quite as modern.
