  1. https://scholarship.rice.edu/handle/1911/71846 Rice owns a lot of land off the Highway 90 feeder. I went on a new running route and stopped by. Looks like dirt is being moved at the back of the property. Expansion or maintenance related?
  2. Just thought Id pass this along. Please join us for the Rice Design Alliance's Civic Forum 2019. This year we are taking on the urgent topic of urban obsolescence and the importance of maintaining, preserving, and reusing the historic fabric of our cities. At a critical moment in Houston's urban growth, what is the value of architecture in our city and our region and why should we care about preserving Houston's identity through its urban past? While some might argue that doing away with the past can be a sound business solution, is that really the case and does nostalgia really hav
  3. At a time when Houston has begun to reposition its bayous as an amenity, transforming them from the utility of drainage ditches into the beauty of hundreds of miles of connected linear parks with Bayou Greenways, and when the impending reconfiguration of the Pierce Elevated around Downtown presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to improve the city, the Rice School of Architecture and the Rice Design Alliance present Projective Infrastructures. Curated by Christopher Hight, Associate Professor of the Rice School of Architecture, this series will bring three internationally recognized landsca
  4. Some people were talking in another thread about the current "arms race" going on amongst major universities. Some of us are fresh out of college (or maybe still in school) who have seen the arms race first hand, others are older and have watched from a different perspective as their alma mater jumped into this ongoing competition for the finest facilities. What are everyones feelings on the arms race? Is it good for the schools? Which Texas school is winning this race?

  6. In software design, a plug-in adds a specific feature to enhance or expand an existing application. The Rice School of Architecture/Rice Design Alliance Spring 2015 Lecture Series presents four speakers who strategically install a different cultural plug-in — material, social, economic, tectonic — to refresh our attitudes about architecture’s capabilities. Curated by RSA Visiting Wortham Lecturer Tei Carpenter, Plug-Ins will feature the following four lecturers: January 21 Markus Bader, Co-Founder, raumlabor Reception sponsored by D.E. Harvey Builders January 28 James Casebere, Artist Re
  7. Our fall lecture series starts tomorrow night. There'll be a mix of architects, historians, artists, photographers; their creative work is speculative and tries to imagine what our cities and buildings will look like in the next 10, 15, 20 years. This lecture series will have a different format from others. On Wednesday, October 1, Jean-Louis Cohen, an architectural historian and critic, will introduce the series and explore its themes. The next two weeks will feature a curated discussion between two artists. On Wednesday, October 8, Belgian photographer Filip Dujardin will be in dialogue wi
  8. I know there are a lot of urban explorers here on HAIF. Has anyone been to the tunnels beneath Rice University? There's 2.6 miles of tunnels down there. And the Facilities department even has tours open to the public! http://facilities.rice.edu/Department.aspx?id=2248
  9. HOUSTON – (Aug. 5, 2009) – Sarah Whiting, a member of the Princeton University School of Architecture faculty and an expert in urban and architectural theory, has been named dean of the Rice University School of Architecture. Whiting will take the helm Jan. 1, 2010, from John Casbarian, the school's longtime associate dean who is serving as dean until Dec. 31, 2009. Lars Lerup stepped down as dean earlier this year after 16 years and will return to Rice in 2010 as a professor. “Sarah Whiting’s strengths as a teacher, author and designer are clear, and she brings abundant energy and intellec
  10. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/front/6083117.html "Rice University and Baylor College of Medicine have begun holding serious discussions that could lead to a merger of the state's top private university and one of the country's best medical schools. A merger would bring Rice the reputational enhancement it has long desired and Baylor the security of a university affiliation, which is often necessary to keep medical schools afloat financially. Baylor is one of only nine stand-alone medical schools in the United States."
  11. For years I have been wondering if Sears will ever do something with this eyesore located in midtown. It has so much potential, I guess at one point it was actually considered a beautiful building. Sears really needs to think about bringing it back to its original form. Something needs to be done. I would prefer to preserve the building, instead of razing it . What do you all think? Article found in the Chronicle today. http://www.chron.com/disp/story.mpl/life/main/5924010.html ''It's hideous!" fumes my friend V., warming up to one of his favorite rants: the unbearable ugliness of the Sears o
  12. What's the story on this? It's going up on the formerly beautiful green lawn between Temple Emanu El and Oak Shadows on Sunset Boulevard across from Rice. Today I noticed a sign giving just the web address: thirtysunset.com At that site it says only "Five residences starting at $2 million" with a form to fill in for information. What's going on here? I thought a few years ago the Community Association blocked Emanu El from building a parking lot here. With the new parking garage (ugly) just down Sunset, and the Ashby highrise fight, how did this get through? And why can't I find an
  13. I run several times a week around the perimeter of Rice University. I've always wondered if it were possible for the general public to access the stadium and run up/down the steps between the bleachers. I couldn't find a way to get in on Sunday. Does anyone know if this is possible?
  14. I attached a small video camera to my bike and recorded my ride around the Rice campus yesterday. Cool huh? (anybody know how to embed the YouTube video?)
  15. Rice announced the $30 million gift for College #11, Duncan College. Along with new residential college #10, McMurtry College, there will be two new LEED certified buildings for Rice (and its first Gold certification). http://www.media.rice.edu/media/NewsBot.as...;SnID=417075778 http://www.bizjournals.com/houston/stories...63&ana=e_du
  16. Presented in collaboration with Memorial Park Conservancy and the Houston Parks and Recreation Department, RDA Partners will focus on bridging Memorial Park. This year participants will be challenged to propose a design to unite the north and south parts of Memorial Park, Houston's largest urban park, via a pedestrian bridge.

  17. The highly visible plot of land on Rice's campus on the corner of Main St and University Blvd. will house The Collaborative Research Center. Designed to be LEED certified by Skidmore, Owings, and Merrill, the tower will contain 477,000 square feet for class/lab space for bioscience and biotech research. Rice will operate the center in conjunction with Baylor, MD Anderson, UT Health Science, Texas Children's and a host of other TMC institutions. The building will have 3 levels of underground parking and 10,000 square feet of retail/restaurant space that faces Main St. Plans call for the design
  18. Does anyone have any memories from times in University/College? Any strange acts of vandalism or teenage stupidity? Any tips on how to stay in college? My sister is coming back from DePauw University (in Greencastle, Indiana) for Thanksgiving. She just graduated from Lamar High in Houston last May. She says that at DePauw a bunch of kids vandalized a deer statue donated by an alumn by making a failed attempt to saw off its legs. Then some kids rode the statue in the nude during Halloween.
