Architecture Center Houston and AIA Houston presents "Once & Future Architecture" by artist Patrick Renner. Renner is also being honored as the AIA Houston Artisan of the Year.

In "Once & Future Architecture," Renner pays tribute to one of nature’s chief builders and architects, the mud dauber. Inspired by a piece he created in 2012, wooddauber, Renner fills the Center with a larger-than-life dauber nest. Renner’s fascination with the non-aggressive wasps began when he noticed the laboriously constructed nests throughout his Houston studio.

Constructed from architecture refuse Renner collected over the years, the installation is a patchwork of found materials that wraps around the gallery providing viewers an immersive experience of the labor and craftsmanship.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display until August 18.
