AIA Home Tours, Houston & Austin
Anyone who is interested in architecture or interiors and fancies a peek inside some of the Lone Star State’s most beautiful residences for inspiration should plan to make a day (or two) of touring the impressive roster of addresses selected for inclusion in the upcoming annual AIA Home Tours in both Houston and Austin.
The Houston tour will showcase seven architect-designed abodes by firms such as Collaborative Designworks, Paul N. Brow Architect and StudioMet Architects. Bob Robinowitz, of McIntyre + Robinowitz, the Houston tour chairman, and the selection committee considered homes based on design excellence, quality and craftsmanship, innovative design solutions and use of materials, and sustainability of design.
Likewise, the professionals whose incredible work you can expect to find on the Austin tour include Alterstudio Architecture, Baldridge Architects, Dick Clark + Associates, Elizabeth Baird Architecture + Design, FAB Architecture, Franke : Franke, McCollum Studio Architects, McKinney York Architects, and Ravel Architecture. Curious voyeurs who would like to attend each tour will have to make a choice, unfortunately. The self-guided, two-day events will take place over the same weekend, October 19-20. Be sure to visit the respective tour websites for details and ticket information.
