The Architecture Center Houston (ArCH) occupies approximately 5,000 SF carved from the old Albert Thomas Convention Center in Phase II of the Bayou Place renovation developed by The Cordish Company. ArCH houses offices of the American Institute of Architecture, Houston Chapter, the Houston Architecture Foundation, a gallery for rotating architecture-related exhibitions, meeting rooms, and a terrace overlooking Buffalo Bayou.

Mission

To promote awareness, understanding, and appreciation of the ways in which architecture and urban design influence and enhance the quality of life in our community.

ArCH is intended to be a place for the public, both Houston residents and tourists, to learn about architecture in general and the built environment of greater Houston. Exhibitions will change approximately every two months and will focus on architecture of national interest as well as that of Houston.
