Building Design+Construction article about "On Campus Performing Arts Centers and Museums"

"Another arts education project that’s drawn attention is Diller Scofidio + Renfro’s (DS+R) design for the Susan and Fayez Sarofim Hall, a $25 million, 50,000-sf building for visual and dramatic arts students, situated on the Houston campus of Rice University. Sarofim Hall, which is scheduled to break ground this year and be completed in 2024, will add to Rice’s already vibrant cultural district that includes the Moody Center for the Arts (which opened in 2017), the newly constructed Brockman Hall for Opera, and Shepherd School of Music’s Alice Pratt Brown Hall."

I was going to post this yesterday, but for some reason thought it had already been mentioned here. I must've been anticipating you posting it. :-)

The plans for Pub to share space with other vendors don't sound great, especially since it appears the administration made that decision without bothering to consult anyone involved with Pub management beforehand. And it strikes me as BS that it was as simple as an either/or issue when it came to Pub having its own dedicated space vs. dining space for grad students. If it had been a priority, I'm sure they could have found a way to accommodate both needs.

Luay Nakhleh, the William and Stephanie Sick Dean of the George R. Brown School of Engineering, toured the construction site of the new Engineering and Science Building on April 5. The 266,000-square-foot building rising on the former Abercrombie Engineering Lab site will host materials, quantum and energy research among other initiatives, and will be home to The Welch Institute. The building is expected to open in early 2023.

Has anyone heard anything about a new wing on McNair hall? The Rice Business alumni magazine references a new wing, but I've never seen any other information about it. 

"Updates to the third floor of McNair Hall, now underway, and the planned addition of a new wing will make the school a more modern, more inviting place to study, teach and work."

"Rice unveils plan for new student center"

https://www.ricethresher.org/article/2022/02/rice-unveils-plan-for-new-student-center

I'm sure the students will feel comfortable studying there. And that's a great motivation in my opinion. In the student center you can easily do your homework and always have access to https://writix.com/assignment-writing-service where there is a large database of study materials. That should help a lot of students a lot.

Pretty interesting project

Sounds like a stadium update is on the horizon.

 

Quote

“How do we take this grand old structure that’s so meaningful to so many people and try to modernize it in a way that’s effective for our current students, student-athletes and fans? That’s the challenge,” Karlgaard said. “We’re in a really good place with that. I think in the next month or so we’ll be able to show people what it is that we plan to do. And for those that have seen the concepts around the stadium modernization plan, they’re really, really excited about it.”
