Description

The Houston Design Center presents

THE WORLD OF ARCHITECTURE IN TEXAS TODAY

with

MAKING THINGS

The Houston Design Center is honored to welcome esteemed architect Jay Baker, as one of the Fall Market Keynote Speakers. Jay Baker will discuss his new book, Making Things, a review of the collective portfolio of Jay Baker Architects through 19 projects across varied design platforms. Baker’s work contributes to his belief that in order to make things well, it is necessary to serve the integrity of an idea, ensuring greater incisiveness in response to design challenges. The body of work presented in Making Things extols the virtue of creating fit, particularly when working in multifarious contexts.

Followed by:
