For over two decades, teams of architects, designers, and engineers have taken their tools to East Beach in Galveston for one of the world’s largest sandcastle competitions. The Houston Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA) has been hosting this competition since 1986.

This year, residents of Galveston attempted to set a new world record for the most aluminum cans collected in an eight hour period in conjunction with the AIA Sandcastle competition. By hosting a tent at the event, we were able to contribute to this effort. Despite the downpours, the competition was a success!
