The Rice School of Architecture is a think tank. We build knowledge. About architecture. About the city. About program. About form. About technology. About what we know. About what we knew. About what we will know soon.
The Rice School of Architecture is intimate and intense. We are a small school with large ambitions. We are nimble. We can, and do, optimize at every turn. We know you. You know us. At our core is a running conversation: a tête-à-tête that is curated, spontaneous, formal, and informal. It connects students, faculty, and visitors. It connects architecture to ideas. It connects the school to the world. It is as casual as a passing exchange and as vibrant as a thesis presentation. It takes place in a series of carefully considered studios, lecture courses, seminars, workshops, events, and travels around the world. It takes place over a coffee. It might be rumination; it might be rambunctious. It is a conversation that begins as an introduction to architecture and culminates in an architect being far more than conversant: the Rice School of Architecture teaches architects to be leaders in the conversations that inevitably make up our discipline.
