Explore Austin architecture with online guide

Wednesday, September 2, 2020 by Tai Moses

Those interested in learning more about Austin architecture now have a handy reference at their fingertips. The colorful, easy to use Guide to Austin Architecture – a joint venture of the Austin chapter of American Institute of Architects and its associated foundation – is now online for all to use and includes an inaugural self-guided walking tour of Austin’s downtown. According to the news release, “While the Guide is composed by experts, special care has been taken to make it accessible to architecture enthusiasts and casual explorers alike. The Guide explores not only buildings and their context, but beloved community-made spaces and places of Austin as well. Maps, text, and images allow for self-led walking tours or virtual forays from the comfort of the couch.” In addition, “Upcoming entries and tours will focus on the concept of Austin-ness and the neighborhoods of underrepresented local communities.” Said Ingrid Spencer, executive director of AIA Austin, “We are thrilled to provide a different tool for people to explore Austin in person or virtually in these unusual times.”
