2011 Rice Design Alliance Home Tour: Houses of Import
Photo by Hester and Hardaway
The tour will showcase visiting architects’ contributions to Houston’s architectural vitality. Houses of Import reveals how unique characteristics of Houston – climate, history, transportation, landscape, lack of zoning – are interpreted from an outsider's perspective. Ultimately, the tour seeks to understand how an emerging global design practice is beginning to have a substantive impact on our local residential design market.
The tour stays open from 1 - 6 p.m. on both April 2 and 3.
