Houston 2020 Visions, an exhibition at the AIA Houston’s Architecture Center Houston (ArCH) space, displays the results of an initiative that began in 2018 in response to the devastation wrought by Hurricane Harvey the year before. Since then, two design competitions have been put into motion, titled Complete the Community: An Affordable Housing and Design Competition and Request for Visions. Both solicited proposals for innovative ways to rebuild a better city and place design and sustainability at the core of planning for a more resilient future.
The exhibit features 26 selected projects from the competitions that explore themes including Prairie-to-Bay Ecology, Green Corridors, Hubs, the Future of Buildings, and the Future of the Energy Economy. The showcase is the inaugural exhibition for the newly reopened ArCH space, which flooded during Hurricane Harvey. It is currently open to the public by reservation.
