018. Project Row Houses

Project Row Houses, 1993, 2505-2521 Holman St., Third Ward. The award-winning Project Row Houses have helped to revitalize the historic Third Ward, one of Houston's oldest African American communities, by restoring and converting 22 row houses into artists' studios and residences. Established by African American artists and community activists in 1993, this non-profit urban renewal effort makes the houses available to working artists to use on a rotating basis for permanent installations and workshops. Recently, students at Rice University's Building Workshop built attractive low-income rental housing behind the row houses.
