Welcome to Open Architecture Houston! We are a chapter of the Open Architecture Collaborative, formerly Architecture for Humanity. 

We are local designers working with underserved communities, contributing resources to a global network. If you are a design/construction professional, a student, or are just interested in how design can have a positive impact in our community, join us!

When people design and build their own environments, they take ownership of the places they create, sustain them long term, keep them safe, invest in them, and color them with their most precious expressions. We bring together architects, designers, nonprofit organizations, municipalities and local community groups, enabling underserved communities to take ownership of collectively created places.

We address two problems: lack of hands-on community experience for young professionals and limited access to design services for marginalized communities.


Open Architecture Houston seeks to facilitate the inclusive creation of place and space through open, participatory design principles. We are working towards building a more sustainable future where all members of our Houston community can thrive.
