Today, Buffalo Bayou Partnership (BBP) and the Architecture Center Houston present Guy Hagstette, a consultant and project manager for BBP, in a talk called Discovery of the Cistern. SmartGeoMetrics is providing 3-D imaging of the now empty space while Hagstette details the facility's history and possible future.
