The Sterling-Turner Festival Lawn is an outdoor event space situated on the grounds of the Asia Society Texas Center in Houston, TX. This expansive area is overlooked by the state-of-the-art center designed by Yoshio Taniguchi, a renowned Harvard-educated architect. The establishment promotes harmonious multi-culturalism and celebrates the rich diversity of cultural traditions, both East and West, through a number of programs and partnerships. The Festival Lawn is ideal for celebrations and gatherings of every kind, from weddings and private parties to artistic screenings and performances.
Asian and American influence is sewn into the very soil of the Festival Lawn, as it features flora from both regions. A garden gathering may be held here for a bohemian and relaxed ambiance. When designing this entire venue, Taniguchi’s vision was to create an atmosphere of serenity and elegance. This balance clearly extends to the outdoor area.
An experienced event manager is on hand to curate events for up to 400 people. Tables and chairs can also be provided and arranged in a number of ways around the lawn. Typical soirées at this location include casual al fresco dinners and formal wedding ceremonies. There are bathrooms and parking facilities available at this location for guests’ convenience.
