Please join us on January 30, 2023 for the lectures with the recipients of RDA's 2022 Houston Design Research Grant. The goal of the grant is to promote research on Houston-specific urban conditions that need urgent attention and that can make a significant contribution to the Houston community through quality design-thinking.

Each grantee category was awarded with a $6,000 grant to further the work on their proposals. Both grantee projects will be published in the forthcoming 40th anniversary issue of Cite magazine.

The faculty and student winners were announced in April 2022. University of Houston Gerald Hines College of Architecture and Design Adjunct Faculty Member Daniel Jacobs and Rice Architecture Assistant Professor Brittany Utting, along with Rice Architecture student Rae Atkinson (M.Arch. ‘24) have been named the winners of the Houston Design Research Grant 2022, awarded by the Rice Design Alliance (RDA). Read the entire winners announcement here.

The Houston Design Research Grant is made possible thanks to a generous gift from The Mitsui U.S.A. Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Mitsui & Co. (U.S.A.), Inc. (“Mitsui USA”). Established in 1987, The Mitsui U.S.A. Foundation currently supports more than 50 initiatives across the US in the areas of Education, Community Welfare, Arts and Culture, and Employee Matching and Volunteerism.
