Rice Design Alliance


The Rice Design Alliance, formed within Rice Architecture in 1972, is dedicated to advancing architecture, urban design, and the built environment in the Houston region through programs and publications. Our ambition is to increase public awareness and appreciation of design at all scales. The Rice Design Alliance carries out its mission through a series of public lectures, architecture tours in Houston and beyond, civic forums, networking events, and publications, thereby providing students, faculty, and Rice Design Alliance members a launching pad to make a real difference in the city.
