Brought to you by the Michael G. Meyers Design Competition

Become a part of the Michael G. Meyers Design & Scholarship Competition Committee and join us for a happy hour to celebrate the work of last year’s committee and to kick off the 2024 competition. We will kick off the season on Thursday, August 3 at 6pm at Urban South Brewery.

The annual scholarship competition, sponsored by Architecture Center Houston Foundation and AIA Houston, is an ideas competition with an emphasis on creative problem solving and graphic presentation. In previous years students have been asked to design an education center with a focus on sustainability, mixed-use building in the Third Ward, an animal shelter and many other challenging projects. The committee chooses the project, writes the program, raises the funds for the scholarships, and hosts a series of events to help the students learn basic architectural design skills and understand the competition requirements.

2023 Michael G. Meyers Competition (MGMC) Scholarship Winners can be viewed here.

Planning begins in the Fall, the program kicks off in January with student events and fundraising, and wraps up with an awards ceremony in May 2024.

If you are unable to join us for the happy hour, but are interested in joining. Contact MGMC Committee Chair Megan Kohler.
