Cities of Architecture: Houston

The third instalment of ACCA‘s ‘Cities of Architecture‘ talks comes from Don Bates, director of LAB Architecture Studio and Chair of Architectural Design at the University of Melbourne. Join Don as he surveys the urban, architectural and cultural contexts of Texas’s most populous city, including an insight into some of Houston’s art galleries and museums, as well as the little-known correspondence between Houston and Melbourne.

Running from March to October, the ‘Cities of Architecture’ program brings together leading architects, designers and academics to discuss some of the world’s most inspiring cities through the built environment, culture and urban history.

Arrive from 5pm to enjoy a complimentary Houston-inspired cocktail created by the Melbourne Gin Company and Starward Whisky. The seminar will begin at 6pm.
