Join members of the Michael G. Meyers Competition Committee for a walking tour of the 2018 project site and surrounding neighborhood. Learn more about the competition program and the context of its site. This is an outdoor walking tour. Please dress appropriately and wear comfortable shoes. Hats, sunscreen, and umbrellas are always a good idea in Houston.

The 2018 competition program will be announced at the workshop on Saturday January 20th.

An annual ideas competition with an emphasis on creative problem solving and graphic presentation, the Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition is sponsored by the Architecture Center Houston Foundation, the Houston Chapter of AIA and local architectural firms and affiliates. The Competition Committee hosts a series of events to help the students learn basic architectural design skills and understand the competition requirements. Projects are due in April and the winners will be announced at an awards ceremony at Architecture Center Houston. All Houston area high school students are eligible to participate regardless of class affiliation or age. Students are requested to enter only once per year as either a member of a team or as an individual. Teachers and Counselors are encouraged to promote this scholarship competition.
