Uptown Houston is often called Houston’s ‘second downtown’. But not too long ago this stylish neighborhood was home to dusty farms and vegetable stands.

Asia Society Texas Center

Asia Society Texas Center is an architectural marriage of east and west. Designed by Japan-born, Harvard-educated Yoshio Taniguchi, it combines contemporary international design with an understated elegance and serenity one associates with Asia. Its 40,000 square feet is spread over two stories and basement, resulting in a low-slung profile that fits comfortably into its residential surroundings. Yet the building immediately draws the eye—first by the grace of its lines, then by the materials and workmanship that went into its making. When it opened its doors to the public on April 14, 2012, the Center took its place as an iconic addition to Houston’s architecturally rich cityscape.
