March 26 - March 29, 2015

University of Houston Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture will host the TEX-FAB 2015 event. The theme Plasticity initiated in the recent competition will be expanded upon with a new series of Workshops, Lectures and an Exhibition featuring the winning project Plastic Stereotomy by Justin Diles and the other finalists. A symposium will kickoff with a Keynote Lecture by Ronald Rael, a leading voice in the expanding use of 3D printing in construction using alternative materials. Bill Kreysler will lead a series of talks on the topic of Plasticity as our industry partner in composite fabrication and our generous supporter of the Plasticity pavilion to be unveiled at the event. JOIN US in Houston next Spring! Register for the Symposium and Workshops
