ON THE MOVE
Eighteen University of Houston architecture students took on a project that was something out of the ordinary: to design and build a transportable pavilion. The project facilitator, the world-renowned Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, will deploy the winning design across the city.
Graduate and undergraduate students at the UH Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design participated in the semester-long project. Considered non-pavilions, the designs needed to be engaging and spark conversations about art and its role in a diverse, deeply cultural community. Students created experimental and unusual designs for a multidimensional landscape.
The next stop for the exhibition is the new Glassell School of Art Gallery when it opens at the MFAH in Fall 2018. Once the UH-designed mobile pavilion is constructed, it will be deployed across the city in 2019.

The Houston: Genetic City exhibit explores Houston’s future development postindustrial, post-oil and post-sprawl. Presented as a series of maps, models and virtual reality simulations, the exhibition considers potential development solutions for Houston's hot, humid and flood-prone climate. The exhibit debuted at the world renowned Aedes Architectural Forum in Berlin July 2018. The exhibit will be open to the public in the College’s Mashburn gallery through January 5th.
