Dallas has such a magnificent collection of mid century modern homes because Dallas expanded so rapidly during this era. In fact, Mockingbird Lane was the 1955 boundary of Dallas. New York trained Howard Meyer designed classically modern homes in the 1950s. Edward Durell Stone designed his most important house, as did architect Harwell Hamilton Harris. Dallas based architects Scott Lyons, Ralph Merrill, Glenn Galaway, and Joseph Gordon all created mid century modern homes worthy of national attention.
