Description

A treasure trove of great architecture, the Rice University campus features designs by: Cram, Goodhue, & Ferguson; John Staub; William Ward Watkin; Michael Graves; Kieran Timberlake; Ricardo Bofill; Hopkins Architects; Lake|Flato Architects; and many other local and internationally renowned architects. Tour participants will view these works, as well as large-scale art works by James Turrell and Michael Heizer.

Traveling from Lovett Hall to Brochstein Pavilion, we will look at some of the more unique, historical features of Rice University’s Campus, as well as more recent additions, both residential and academic. In addition to touring the architecture, we will explore the context surrounding each building — the quads, courts, and axes — and how these elements work together to shape collegiate space.

Please note This is a walking tour once the bus arrives on campus. Please wear comfortable shoes.
