Rice Design Alliance 2015 Lecture Series


Recommended Posts

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:
