The Fort Worth American Institute of Architects Homes Tour is Fort Worth’s only citywide homes tour curated by architects. Open to the public, this self-guided tour showcases outstanding residential architecture in the Fort Worth area designed by local architects. The AIA Fort Worth Homes Tour helps make possible the variety of programs offered to the public throughout the year by AIA Fort Worth. Initiated in 2012, it already has become one of the Chapter’s most important outreach programs. It is a unique opportunity to experience great residential design.
360 West Magazine has partnered with AIA Fort Worth as the Tour’s Media Sponsor. The five homes on this year’s tour exhibit a variety of living accommodations and architectural styles, all demonstrating the value that architects can bring to residential projects. This year features homes by Norman Ward, FAIA; Marta Rozanich, AIA; 97w; Paul Dennehy, AIA; and Brandon Allen, AIA. See images below.
Advance tickets go on sale in March and can be purchased here. Regular tickets can be purchased at each of the homes during the weekend of the Tour.

Proceeds from the AIA Fort Worth Homes Tour support the variety of programs offered to the public throughout the year, and has quickly become one of the Chapter’s most important – and exciting – outreach programs.
