Although located 50 miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico, Houston is one of the major seaports in the United States. The conversion of winding, marshy Buffalo Bayou into the Houston Ship Channel precipitated rapid industrial growth. With petroleum, Houston became a boom town, ever growing, ever changing. In 1940 it ranked as the country’s 27th most populous city; 20 years later, it had soared to 4th. Because there are no zoning ordinances, Houston has experienced unrestricted development. This has resulted in the city having more than one skyline and being a proving ground for innovative architecture.
