The San Antonio Botanical Garden and the American Institute of Architects will bring storybooks to life this Spring with the interactive display Storybook Houses. Five unique interpretations, selected from a competitive field of submissions, will be on display for Garden visitors to explore inside and out.

Area architects and design teams submitted entries for consideration, utilizing a wide array of styles and materials. A panel of judges representing the AIA, San Antonio Public Library and the Botanical Garden reviewed the designs and scored them based on a variety of criteria such as creativity of design and use/re-use of weather-resistant materials; focus on recycling, reuse or sustainability; accessibility; collaboration with others; and design appeal for all ages of visitors.

The five entries selected for the exhibit will be constructed at the Garden and ready for exploration in March.

The winning Storybook Houses entries include:

  • Oh! The Places You’ll Go - Brady Renner, PBK
  • San Antonio & the Beanstalk - Lucas Mackey, Esau Hernandez, and Marcel Van der Maas, Overland Partners
  • Diary of a Worm - Christopher Drown and Lauren Drown, Bucrane Design Build
