A dozen structures designed by architects practicing in the Houston metropolitan area stand out as the best works this year — with most of the projects right here in the Bayou City -—in a prestigious design competition.
Photographs of the winning projects will be featured in an exhibition opening July 31 in collaboration with the 2014 Student Biennial at Architecture Center Houston, 315 Capitol St., Suite 120.
Jurors Wendy Evans Joseph, FAIA (Cooper Joseph Studio, New York City); Matt Kreilich, AIA (Snow Kreilich Architects, Minneapolis); and Jing Liu (SO - IL, Brooklyn) deliberated the more than 100 submittals to declare this year's winners.

The loosely wooded site of Lone Star College, an existing late '70s corporate campus organized formally but without spatial relationships, now operates as a community college. The new 70,000-square-foot Engineering and Manufacturing Institute is designed to take typical suburban office park construction into an integrated classroom and lab space.
