New York, NY
Rice+Lipka is an innovative, New York City based platform for a range of building, planning, art, exhibition, and cultural research projects. The studio engages the public with memorable, contemporary built works that emerge from fresh programmatic, graphic and formal speculations, and that integrate new construction techniques and materials.
R+L pursues an iterative design approach that inventively embraces practical constraints and actively teases out of them hidden, often unexpected, design opportunities. Lyn Rice was a design principal and the architect-of-record for one of the world's largest contemporary art museums, Dia:Beacon, and with Astrid Lipka, has directed works such as the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, the Sheila Johnson Design Center at Parsons, Ordos 100:Villa 007, as well as multiple projects for the New York Public Library.
R+L recently received the 2014 AIA New York State Award of Excellence (one of a dozen American Institute of Architects Design Awards received since R+L’s founding in 2004), the 2014 International ALA/IIDA Library Design Award, the 2013 National AIA/ALA Library Building Award, and the 2013 Architectural Review Future Projects Award among others. Rice was selected as one of the Architectural League of New York's Emerging Voices and named part of the Design Vanguard by Architectural Record. The work of R+L is widely recognized through lectures, publications and exhibitions.
