Tour the Mission City During Convention

J. Brantley Hightower, AIA, recently purchased one of those cool new digital cameras that also shoots video. Wanting to explore this functionality, he agreed to put together a video illustrating some of the more interesting projects in San Antonio that attendees to this year's convention might want to see for themselves. At least until he's ready to move to Hollywood, Brantley works at Lake|Flato Architects.

Map out your experience of the host city for TSA's 71st Annual Convention and Design Products and Ideas Expo.
