ArCH Membership Incentive Program (MIP)

Architecture Center Houston (ArCH) is dedicated to promoting awareness, understanding, and appreciation of Houston’s built environment, and as a member of ArCH you will be supporting a myriad ways in which architecture and urban design enhance the quality of life in the greater Houston area. There are no membership requirements other than an interest in the built landscape including environmental responsibility, urban design, interior design, public art, and landscape architecture. Members of the Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects are automatically ArCH members.

ArCH Membership provides access to events, such as the annual AIA Sandcastle competition in Galveston and the Gingerbread Build-Off at City Hall, as well as neighborhood tours and special programs such as the In Architecture series and our annual film festival. You will receive invitations to the openings of our exhibitions, insightful gallery lectures, and other architectural programs of general interest to the public. Our email newsletters will keep ArCH members abreast of Houston’s current and exciting architectural developments.

ArCH Membership is free to the public. Members will earn points for attending programs and participating in events. Members can trade in their points for ArCH merchandise and other awards. Members who accumulate more than 20 points in a calendar year (Jan - Dec) will be invited to a special MIP event in the following calendar year. Sign up by following the link below. You will automatically earn points when you register and sign-in at ArCH events and programs. Each event or program registration will indicate how many points you receive for participating.
