Nine architect-designed houses selected by a jury of industry experts to represent the finest in new residential architecture will be featured in the 2016 Annual AIA Houston Home Tour. The Tour Chairman is Camilo Parra, AIA of Parra Design Group, Ltd. Open to the public, the self-guided, 2-day tour attracts approximately 3,000 people each year and operates with generous permission from homeowners, community cooperation, 200 volunteers, and architects eager to share each home's design.


All of the homes on the tour are located within the Houston metropolitan area, designed by an AIA architect, and completed within the last 5 years. This year’s selection committee is Elizabeth Alford, Principal of POLLEN (Austin), Brantley Hightower, Founding Partner of HIWorks (San Antonio), and Brian Carlson, Partner McKinney York Architects (Austin). The criteria used to select homes for the tour include design excellence, quality and craftsmanship, innovative design solutions and use of materials, and sustainability of design. The selection committee reviewed all submittals and made a recommendation to the AIA Houston Executive Committee, which made the final selection of homes to include on the tour.
