Austin Foundation for Architecture - About


Our built environment reflects what we value as a community.

The Austin Foundation for Architecture (the Foundation) is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization dedicated to promoting the positive impact of architecture for all Austin communities.

Established in 2007, we produce public programs, exhibitions, and experiences that increase awareness and appreciation of Austin’s built environment. We also celebrate and cultivate design and placemaking leaders to demonstrate the power of design excellence.

We collaborate with myriad community partners, including our sister organization AIA Austin, a chapter of the American Institute of Architects. Our programs are hosted at our shared home in the Austin Center for Architecture, across the city, and online—we invite you to explore and to join us!

Funding has been provided to the Foundation from Humanities Texas and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) aas part of the American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act of 2021.
