Landscape Architecture


Recommended Posts

Landscape Architecture is again the focus of the Rice Design Alliance. There are two lectures remaining in this series. In the first lecture, it was determined that landscape is perhaps more important to a city than the buildings that sit within the city. The second lecture was given by the landscape architect of our future downtown park.

The third lecture in our fall series: Resurfacing the City, will

begin Wednesday, October 18 (today) at 7 pm in the Brown Auditorium

at The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.

In addition, thanks to our generous underwriter The Office of James

Burnett, please join us upstairs in the museum lobby for a pre-

lecture wine reception from 6 pm to 6:45 pm.

This lecture series will examine the renewed role of landscape and its emergence as an important motif in the discourse on architecture and urbanism. American cities are defined as much by their fields of landscape as by their monuments. As architecture has always been within landscape, landscape is within architecture. Recreation, tourism, and public interest in ecology and the environment make landscape projects the program through which designers, communities, and politicians seek to define the future of the built environment.

We hope you will join us!
