Ai Weiwei's 'Five Houses' Exhibit

| April 12, 2012 | Calendar

The American Institute of Architects Houston and Architecture Center Houston presents a major new architectural project by contemporary Chinese artist Ai Weiwei - the first since Chinese authorities detained the internationally acclaimed talent last year. It is the U.S. premiere for the project, which debuted at the Kunsthaus Bregenz in Bregenz, Austria this past summer. In development for the past three years, Five Houses was created by Ai Weiwei in collaboration with Basel-based HHF architects. It is the cornerstone of a larger project, Ai Weiwei House, which interprets the concept of a residential building as a Gesamtkunstwerk - a complete work of art.
