This petition had 157 supporters

This petition requests that the City of Houston, Houston Parks Department, and Council Member Martin find a way to restore the basketball pavilion at Meadow Creek Village Park. The pavilion is the center of neighborhood activity and is an architecturally distinctive and historic landmark for Meadow Creek Village. The pavilion was designed by Raymond H. Brogniez who designed many prominent buildings around Houston. Raymond was a graduate of San Jacinto High School and Rice Institute. He attended Harvard Graduate School of Design. During WWII he served in the US Army Air Force Combat Intelligence Group, where he used his architectural knowledge to analyze aerial photographs of enemy territory. Beginning his practice in Houston in 1946, Brogniez designed the River Oaks-Lamar Shopping Center in Houston (1947). During his partnership with Greacen, their best-known buildings were the Sylvan Beach Pavilion, the Eldridge Memorial Hospital in Sugar Land (1957), and the Gibraltar Savings & Loan Association Building in Houston (1959, with J. V. Neuhaus III), the first multi-story office building in Houston with an all-glass curtain wall. Brogniez was the architect of Strake Jesuit College Preparatory School in Houston (1961-63). From 1965 until 1979 he was a professor of architecture at Texas Tech University in Lubbock.
