2014 Student Biennial
This exhibit will feature student work from 7 of the 8 accredited architecture programs in the State of Texas (University of Houston, Rice University, Prairie View A&M University, Texas A&M University, Texas Tech, University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas at San Antonio.) Each school will select its best work for the exhibition. During the run of the exhibit AIA Houston will host its annual Back to School Bash for architecture students and ArCH will coordinate an alumni panel.  This is the only recurring program in Texas that brings all these institutions together to promote student achievement and discuss education and the future of the profession. A special invitation is extended to local area high school teachers and students as the exhibit is a great resource to those considering architecture as a future major.
