Access to UPWARDS is now open to all. For our 2021 Architecture Tour, originally open June 5 - 19 as a ticketed event and free for RDA members, RDA looked UPWARDS, highlighting examples of urban density in Houston’s housing stock. Access to the virtual tour is now open to the public and accessible to watch at your leisure.
This year’s residences are featured in a series of five videos that explore our city’s gradual transition towards urban densification and some of the different examples of housing types that exist in Houston.
