Houston’s architectural landscape is an eclectic one that mirrors our diverse city. From the incredible Rice University campus right in the middle of the city to the historic heights district, Houston is a city filled with architectural gems. Because the city is growing at such a tremendous pace it’s one of the most attractive cities in the US for owners, investors, and developers. By 2020, Houston's population is expected to grow from today's 2.162 million to 2.52 million. In response to the boom, developers are flocking to the area and building big and building fast.
In 2019, we’ve been seeing an incredible lineup of master-planned communities and mixed use developments in the CBD and also in the growing suburbs. Architects are taking risks by creating high-density mixed-use projects that seamlessly blend different types of spaces into one development. Another popular trend is historical re-developments, like the transformation of the former Barbara Jordan Post Office into POST Houston and the recently remodeled historic C. Baldwin Hotel.
With big projects like the ION and Skanska’s Bank of America Tower, the first LEED v4 Platinum Core & Shell certified project in the United States, Houston is becoming one of the most innovative and urban cities in country.
How are designers thinking about these major projects? What decisions are they making to make new developments competitive? What challenges are leading architects running into when building a booming metropolis?
Hear from the cities best architects on the most exciting projects in the pipeline and the important trends impacting architecture and design. You won’t want to miss our first ever Houston Architecture & Design Summit.
