The Asia Society was founded by John D. Rockefeller, III in New York in 1956. Building on that tradition, the Asia Society Texas Center is an educational institution that advances cultural exchange by celebrating the vibrant diversity of Asia. The building is a 40,000-square-foot center, located in Houston's Museum District and designed by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi — best known in the U.S. for his renovation and expansion of the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
Asia Society Texas Center celebrates the vibrant cultures and diverse perspectives of Asians and Asian Americans. They offer family-friendly festivals, policy conversations, and thought-provoking exhibitions of all kinds.
