Rick Lowe, founder of Project Row Houses, spoke at Texas A&M's Spring 2012 Architecture Lecture Series Feb. 20.
PRH is a a neighborhood-based nonprofit art and cultural organization in Houston’s northern Third Ward that aims to create community through the celebration of art, African American history and culture. A spinoff corporation provides low-income rental housing by designing and building nine low-income housing units.
The project's programs, which encompassarts and culture, neighborhood revitalization, low-income housing, education, historic preservation, and community service,operate on the principle that art—and the community it creates— can be the foundation for revitalizing depressed inner-city neighborhoods.
