*Unity (Riverside) Bank*

Architect John S. Chase (1925-2012) is a founder of modern Houston. The first licensed African-American architect in Texas, he brought the principles of Frank Lloyd Wright to Houston. To truly appreciate his Riverside National Bank building (now Unity), you should go see how jazzy it used to look. Two of his best buildings are at Texas Southern University, the law school and the humanities building. Can you point us to the other Houston work of black architects?
