AIA Museum District Walking Tour @ MFAH Cullen Sculpture Garden | Houston | Texas | United States
The Houston Museum District is one of the few areas in the country with such a dense population of museums, public art, contemporary architecture, and landscape design. On this 2-hour walking tour you will experience the quintessential Modernism of Mies van der Rohe, the structuralist view point of Gunnar Birkerts, the simplicity and craft of Isamu Noguchi, and the first free standing American structure designed by Yoshio Taniguchi. Come explore these and other world class examples of design with ArCH tour guides and trace the chronology of significant cultural shifts from the early twentieth century through today.

Meets at the Miro sculpture in front on the Glassell School inside the MFAH Sculpture Garden, 5101 Montrose Blvd, 77006.
 Street, garage and lot parking available.
