For the 10th annual Architecture Tour of the American Institute of Architects Central Oklahoma Chapter, the focus isn’t on a particular style, but the art form in general.
“This is a way to go out and experience architecture,” says Melissa Hunt, chapter executive director. “Not historic architecture, not modern architecture, just architecture.”
Scheduled from noon to 5 p.m. April 16, the Architecture Tour caps off a weeklong series of events promoting the role design plays in reshaping the metro. This year’s theme is “eXperience OKC.”
Seven locations are on the tour; most are homes, two of which have been featured on previous years’ tours, but in earlier stages of construction. Now they’re complete, and the duplication is intentional, Hunt says.
“[Over the years,] we focused on having a location that was under construction, if possible,” she says, “and then having that location on completed, to show the stages of architecture.”
Tickets for the self-guided tour are $12 in advance or $15 at the door. For more information, visit aiacoc.org.2011 ARCHITECTURE TOUR STOPS
