The Austin Modern Home Tour, now the first Saturday in March, highlights innovative architecture and design. The self-paced, self-guided tour will give you access into 12 beautiful houses and allow you to meet the creative teams who brought each visionary home to life. These include Frank Farkash of Moontower, who created a warm and minimalistic space with just 1,100 square feet, and Kipp Flores Architects, who designed a hilltop modern home with balcony views stretching out eight to 10 miles. Note that you’ll be abiding by neighborhood parking rules for each house you visit.

Details: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday. $35 in advance, $40 day of. Various locations.
