On Saturday April 13, 2013, AIACOC will host two events. One will be the Architecture Tour and the other will be KIDesign. The Architecture Tour is a tour of eight projects in the OKC metro that have been designed by architects. The 2012 Tour locations can be viewed at www.aiacoc.org/tour. Tickets for this year's tour will go on sale March 25th and will be $12 in advance or $15 the day of the tour.
AIACOC and the Oklahoma City Foundation for Architecture invite kids 1st through 6th grade to participate in KIDesign. KIDesign is an event that helps our youth discover architecture in a hands on classroom approach.
Architecture Week will conclude on Sunday with the Oklahoma City Foundation for Architecture's Poker Run. The poker run highlights significant structures around the Central Oklahoma area. This event will feature various architectural works that are historic and architecturally significant. There are five designated stops within a 150 mile radius. Attendees draw a poker card at each stop and the winning hand will be determined at the final stop. Motorcycles and cars are both welcome.
We appreciate all the support you have given Architecture Week in the past and we invite you to join us again this year to celebrate the importance of design in our community.
