Rebuild Architecture Center Houston

$47,245 of $250,000 goal

Raised by 140 people in 22 months
Hurrican Harvey delivered more than 4' of water and almost total devastation to the new space under construction for Architecture Center Houston in the historic 1906 B.A. Riesner building in downtown Houston.  The space was within 3 weeks of completion when the storm hit and flood mitigation designed specifically for this type of event was not yet fully installed.  Typical building insurance does not cover flood damage.  The risk policy carried by the contractor will cover some of the costs, but has a $250,000 deductible.  Architecture Center Houston could use your help.  We've been contacted by colleagues across the country asking how they can help.  A donation toward the costs associated with rebuilding our new center would be greatly appreciated.  All donations will be acknowledged on a special donor wall inside the new center.  All donations are tax deductible and will go to the Architecture Center Houston Foundation, a 501c3 charitable institution whose mission is to educate the public on issues of architecture, urban planning, and design.  Any funds raised in excess of our need for the new center will be directed to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund set up by the City of Houston.  More information on that fund is available at www.ghcf.org.
