After three years, Rice Architecture faculty and Construct co-directors Andrew Colopy and Danny Samuels host an open house and introduce Houston's First Ward to its latest accessory dwelling unit addition. 

The open house served as a good introduction to Rice Architecture’s long history of community engagement for Igor Marjanović, the William Ward Watkin Dean of the school who said, “It is both a design-build program and a research arm of Rice Architecture, integrating cutting-edge scholarship in digital fabrication with the delivery of socially minded building prototypes to our Houston communities — in this case, housing, which is so deeply needed in our city,” he said. “I am immensely grateful to all our students who worked on this project and to our dedicated faculty members. Their collaboration has resulted in a truly beautiful accessory dwelling unit, which we are delighted to transfer to our Houston partners with a great sense of pride and accomplishment.”
