Texas Architect May/June 2014: Water
Exceptional craft and a relationship with water characterize all of the projects in this issue. Water is a scarce commodity in Texas, and with the continuation of the relentless drought conditions across the state, water conservation and energy efficiency are increasingly important. The featured projects include examples of the seamless integration of high-tech mechanicals and well designed spaces.
Marketplace HDP Announces Competitions for 2014 Heritage Documentation Programs (HDP) is a division of the U.S. National Park Service responsible for administering the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), Historic American Engineering Record (HAER), and Historic American Landscapes Survey (HALS).

The Kenneth L. Anderson Prize is given to the highest awarded Peterson Prize entry from a university located in the state of Texas. The Leicester B. Holland Prize, open to both students and professionals, recognizes the best single-sheet measured drawing of a historic building, site, or structure prepared to HABS, HAER, or HALS standards. The HALS Challenge, open to everyone, invites people to complete short format histories to document landscapes created during the Great Depression. All competitions include cash prizes, and deadlines vary. For more information, including instructions on how to enter, visit the “Competitions” section of the HDP website, www.nps.gov/ history/hdp.
