Brought to you by the Young Architects Forum

Join the AIA Houston Young Architect’s Forum for a presentation featuring Design Make Residency projects by Danny Rigg, AIA and Nathan Vice, AIA.

Danny Rigg’s area of exploration for the Design-Make Residency Program is to focus on sustainable garden design and local food production for residential sites. Modular garden components, automated systems, including sensors and remote monitoring, will be part of his study. Given many surrounding areas best suited for food production are being lost to develop low density housing, investigating new prototypes for urban and suburban garden design has great importance for our sustainable future.

Nathan Vice began the 2017 AIA Houston Design/Make Residency with an interest in reciprocal structures and parquet floors. Nathan built numerous artifacts with the patterns and tectonics of these architectural features. Ultimately Nathan used the residency to design and build a lamella pavillion. The fabrication of this structure was challenging and extremely rewarding.  Nathan considers it to be a major achievement in his young career.

Members of YAF will also introduce the 2018 Design Make Residency call for submissions and answer questions about the program.

The AIA Houston Young Architect’s Forum Design‐Make Residency is an innovative program that bridges the gap between theoretical design and physical production. Throughout the program cycle, residents will develop their selected project and area of study, culminating in the production of object(s) to be displayed at Architecture Center Houston. The program provides support for up to 3 residents annually in the form of workshop space and access to tools (via TxRx Labs, https://txrxlabs.org/ ), and connection to other resources such as materials and mentors. All active members of AIA Houston at any stage in their career are eligible to apply.

This program is developed and managed by the Young Architects Forum of the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
