The American Institute of Architects will be opening up seven of Louisville’s finest new architect-designed residences this weekend, including two multi-family developments in downtown Louisville: the Fleur-de-Lis on Main and the Bycks Condominiums on 4th Street. The event begins at 1:00 PM and runs through 6:00 PM on Sunday, September 7, 2008.
Tickets good for admission into all seven projects cost $10 and will be for sale at each location. Proceeds from the event will benefit Habitat for Humanity. On the tour you will have a chance to talk with the architects responsible for each design as well as experience the state of residential architecture in the River City. Here’s more from the AIA-CKC:
The purpose of the Tour is to highlight the importance of design and the unique value that a professional architect brings to such projects; and to raise funds in support of Habitat for Humanity of Metro Louisville. The AIA displays a diverse variety of projects to showcase on the tour to include modern and traditional, new construction and renovation, single family and multi family dwellings.
