The Houston Design Center (7026 Old Katy Road) is honored to welcome esteemed architects, William Curtis and Russell Windham of Curtis & Windham Architects, as Keynote Speakers of the annual Fall Market, Tuesday October 10. Curtis and Windham will discuss their new book A VISION OF PLACE – The Work of Curtis & Windham Architects. In this graciously appointed book, Curtis and Windham, with contributions from some of their associates, reflect on more than two decades of the practice of classical contemporary architecture, providing an expansive view of eighteen representative projects that range from a small garage-studio in an unassuming neighborhood near Rice University to large dwellings situated in Houston’s River Oaks, and even including multi-building, country retreats.
