As one of the top U. S. cities for quality of living and strongest housing markets, the Austin area continues to experience positive growth, with a population in excess of 2 million*. The AIA Austin Homes Tour taps into this growing market, bringing together some 5,000 design enthusiasts to explore and celebrate beautifully designed homes.

The two-day, self-guided Tour features privately owned homes designed by architect members of AIA Austin, with both traditional and contemporary designs. Pre-tour webinars with the architects provide unique insights into the featured homes. The annual Tour catalog, richly illustrated with original photography, offers a lasting keepsake.

The Tour is featured in multiple media including Austin HOME, LUXE, Modern Luxury Interiors, The Austin American-Statesman, Tribeza, Texas Architect, KVUE, and KXAN, just to name a few. We often go beyond Texas, with DWELL, Dezeen, ArchDaily, Architectural Record, and other well-known publications. But even more satisfying than seeing these houses on the pages of design magazines, on TV, and on social media, the Tour offers attendees the chance to explore these homes and their landscapes, offering an aspirational lifestyle experience like none other. We spend four months promoting the Tour before its October 28-29 dates, with collateral reaching over 50,000 people in the Austin market alone.

AIA Austin seeks partners to help demonstrate the power of great design through this year’s 37th Anniversary Tour! Join us as a sponsor to showcase your brand and products to this inspired community of designers and design enthusiasts from Austin and beyond.
