AIA's Houston 175 exhibit

AIA Houston and the Architecture Center Houston have announced the exhibition, "Houston 175: 1836 through Now" will be on display from August 25 to October 29.

Curated for Architecture Center Houston by Barrie Scardino, this exhibition will explore the history of Houston's built environment with hundreds of photographs organized in 10 clusters: First (early history), Sacred, Civic, Shelter, Beautiful, Culture, Modern, Tall, Shop, and Exotic.

The architecture exhibition, one of 10 that will be mounted throughout the city this fall, will be the first event of Houston 175: Celebrate Houston. The city will kick off a year of celebrations on Sunday, August 28 from 5 to 8 p.m. at historic Market Square. Visit www.houston175.org for information on all the projects and events.
