Notes: This guidebook of Houston architecture states of office building at 1010 Milam Street: "The Tenneco Building is a classic, the standard against which all succeeeding tall buildings in downtown Houston have been measured. So much of what makes this building special derives from intangibles: proportions, light and shadow, surface and void." (p. 29); the building is listed on p. 12 of the guide's second edition;
