Water Wall & Williams Tower, by John Burgee & Philip Johnson

Water Wall, by John Burgee & Philip Johnson: The building in the back is The Williams Tower a skyscraper located in the Uptown District of Houston. It was designed by architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, in association with Houston-based Morris-Aubry Architects, and erected in 1983. The tower is among Houston's most visible buildings and can be seen from as far away as Missouri City, a nearby suburb. The building is the 4th tallest in Texas and the 22nd tallest in the United States. In 2002 a 20 year old man jumped to his death from the 30th floor!
