In Troy Schaum’s 302 final review, students presented proposals for an American cultural center. Developed from the aggregation of 32 operated cubes, Serena Liu’s final project, “Fractured Field”, features a continuous roofscape that weaves the individual cubes together into a single volume. On the other hand, the 32 operated cubes can also be recognized in groups of four according to the protruded centers. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #fracturedfield #architecturaldrawing #rendering #fbf

The tension between an outer veil and inner cabin defines a liminal territory, neither completely inside nor out. To enter the Sukkah is no longer a hard boundary, but rather a procession through layers of ambiguous interiority. #ricearchitecture #sukkah #sukkahdesign #studentportfolio #studentarchitecture

Good Morning!! Only THREE days left to get your tickets to Speed Mentoring this Thursday! Today we are excited for you to #meetyourmentor Sarah Whiting! Since 2010, Sarah Whiting has been the dean and William Ward Watkin Professor at the Rice University School of Architecture, a school that operates as a think tank of research and production while preparing graduates to think, negotiate, and collaborate. Whiting is also a partner of WW Architecture, a practice that she co-founded with her partner Ron Witte in 1999. Whiting’s interests are interdisciplinary, with the built environment at their core. In her teaching, writing, and practice, she focuses on architecture’s public audience and how architecture can engage that collective subject: the architectural and urban forms through which that public manifests itself, and how, in turn, that public is formed by its built context. Whiting’s writings have appeared in publications ranging from Assemblage to Wired. Prior to arriving at Rice, she taught at Princeton, Harvard, IIT, and the Universities of Kentucky and Florida. Whiting received her B.A. from Yale University, organizing her studies as an independent major that combined architecture and urban studies with history and philosophy. She received her M.Arch. degree from Princeton University and after two years practicing with Rem Koolhaas in the Netherlands, she returned to school to obtain her Ph.D. in the Architectural History, Theory, and Criticism program at MIT.

WE WANT YOUR STORIES: space and memory in the former Eastern Bloc took Rice Architecture graduate student Alex Palmer through Hungary, Serbia, Montenegro, Albania, and Romania studying housing and urbanism built during the communist regimes in the region. In Cluj-Napoca, Romania, a collaborative project of site documentation, surveys, and interviews was carried out to understand the neighborhood life of the socialist districts and changes in society and architecture since the fall of communism. Through interaction with a wide variety of people, in three languages, from ages 24 to 66, a fascinating picture of a society going through dramatic changes emerged; full of stories framed by buildings and neighborhoods shaped by heavy pre-fabrication in concrete. The information will be presented in an interactive website expected to launch in early 2019 • • Travel carried out with generous funding from the H. Russell Pittman Graduate Traveling Fellowship through @ricearch. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #willtravelforarchitecture

Please join us for the 2018 Rice Architecture Summer Travel Exhibition tomorrow from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in Jury Room, Anderson Hall. Thirty-two students traveled across the world this past summer and will share their research with the school. • • Rice Architecture graduate student Grey Peterson, one of the students in the exhibition and a recipient of the H. Russell Pitman Graduate Fellowship in Architecture, traveled to Aalsmeer, Berne, and the surrounding areas of London, to study gardens through the lenses of industry, image, and domestic space. As architecture constructs the built environment, landscape can be manipulated in such a way that the original image is lost. Thus, landscape is instead inserted or injected into the built environment serving as an amenity or “natural” feature. The goal of his travel was to study how architecture can have a mutualistic relationship with its landscape, allowing visitors and residents to learn and develop a stronger connection with the ground they exist upon. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #willtravelforarchitecture #architectureschool #gardens #landscape #nature

In a city in which single-family detached homes make more than 60% of all housing, the insertion of accessory dwelling units emerges as a smart response to affordable housing in the inner loop. Rice University professors Danny Samuels, Andrew Colopy, and their terrific students have designed and built an extraordinary prototype for Agape (a Third Ward program for assisting youth at risk). Rather than replacing affordable units with more expensive ones, their prototype show us how accessory dwelling could address issues of affordability, diversity, density, sustainability and social change! This is Houston at its best!! Looking forward to the next one! #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #ricearchitectureconstruct

Terrace of the Brochstein Pavillion (2009), designed by New York architects Thomas Phifer & Partners. The three-quarter scale proto-post-modern campanile of the Rice Memorial Cebter (1958), designed by Harvin Moore, a 1927 graduate of Rice, in the the background. We were going in the other day and I was complaining as usual about the delicate trellis that doesn’t block the sun or the rain and the woman in front of us turned around and said, “Oh come on, it’s perfect!” Shame on me for being negative!

Rice Stadium (1950), designed by Arthur Jones of Lloyd & Morgan with Milton McGinty. One of my favorite buildings not only on campus but in Houston. Jones had just graduated from Rice in 1947! Lyrical architecture on the scale of infrastructure. Columns made with formwork salvaged from the construction of overpasses on the Gulf Freeway. The 70,000-seat stadium was intended as a civic gesture to be used not just by the school but by the entire city. Rice later seemed to be uncomfortable with such a grand project. Since at least the early 2000s the administration has been devising ways to justify demolishing it. #ricearchitecture #arthurjones #lloydandmorgan #miltonmcginty #riceecclesstadium #gulffreeway #engineeringaesthetic #concretecolumns #circulation #concreteramp #tallcolumns #riceowls #footballstadium #riceuniversity #funrun #midcenturymodern #texasmodernarchitecture #houstonarchitecture #mcm #houtex #hou #htx

The Spring 2018 Rice Architecture Paris studio addressed the Void as an Urban Generator with a site situated in the heart of Paris with John Casbarian and professors Doug Allard, Federico Pedrini, and Lieven De Boeck from XDGA. Students are faced with a site neighboring the Centre Pompidou and the recently completed Forum Les Halle (La Canopée), that once housed the booming historical central fresh food market. The project is also a possible response from a mini charrette, an exercise in evaluating a possible take on the void, that takes place prior to the studio semester hosted in Houston each fall. Younha Kim's (B.Arch. '18) final project "Courtyard Language" addressed the void using a formal typology, stacking courtyards in modules to evaluate it's potential threshold of interior and exterior conditions for a language school. Through this process, the overlaps between the gaps of the module produce opportunity for circulation, density, and multiplicity of program. To break down the massiveness of the site and overwhelming amount of structure, a strategy with a systematic grid is reflected on the facade to create the allusion of lightness. The school creates a new home for the exchange of culture and language symbolizing the growing community and diversity in Paris. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #ricearchitectureparis #johncasbarian #xdga #architectureschool #finalsemester #riceparisprogram

A look back at the Detroit Reassembly Plant, a proposal completed by T+E+A+M (@TplusEplusAplusM) in 2016 for the Venice Biennale. The Detroit Reassembly Plant reimagines the vacant, iconic Packard Plant as a rich stockpile of concrete, brick, and other construction materials. The project transforms this resource into a new architectural material. This is done by selectively demolishing the debilitated portions of the plant, and combining the rubble with plastics and other post-consumer materials recovered from Detroit’s waste streams. The resulting aggregate mixtures are cast in various forms across the vast site. The new plant includes zones for material sorting and processing, production areas for building construction, a research and development park dedicated to advanced building technologies, public demonstration areas, exhibition galleries, and public outdoor spaces. Images courtesy of T+E+A+M.

From @ricearch Ron Witte’s 602 studio was tasked with designing a mixed-use complex in Kreuzberg, Germany. Lauren Turnage's project, "Ctrl + Block + Shift," modifies the traditional Berlin block by arranging a series of 4 towers into a cruciform. Freed from perimeter restrictions, the entire site operates as public space while the private realm is situated within the bounds of each bar. In an effort to figuratively and literally shift private program into the public realm, floorplates slip away from the bounds of their bar toward another forming semi-public amenity spaces. The simple "shift technique" provides an alternate means to approach private and public space in mixed-use developments. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajws18 #architectureschool #reflectedcityplan #soarch #critday #imadethat #architectureape #thebna #archisource #ctrlblockshift

Brown College Master’s House (1965), designed by engineers at the construction firm of Brown & Root. A curious example of anti-architectural design at Rice University. To me, its direct crudeness has certain affinities with the non-design design of the Rothko Chapel from roughly the same period. #riceuniversity #ricearchitecture #justonewindow #brickwall #symmetry #liveoak #bigtree #flatroof #browncollege #texasmodernarchitecture #midcenturymodern #mcm #engineeringaesthetic

Developed in Jesús Vassallo’s “Tall Timbers” seminar, Carlos Inigo, Erin Chen, Ling Sha, and GreyPeterson’s proposal for a tall timber skyscraper integrates a column and beam structure, incorporated through three self-similar CLT members connected by the utilization of Japanese joinery in a cruciform plan. With the capability of using three different member sizes, the central core serves as the primary circulation and carries the majority of the loads, allowing the structure to thin out as it meets the facade, creating a more open plan and facade for the residential units. By assimilating vertical and lateral loads in a single, modular connection, a faster floor to floor construction time is envisioned, reducing the construction time and economy of the project. • • The physical model, displayed in the following images, shows the construction of a completed floor, which has the capability of being stacked up to twenty stories. 📷 by @nashb #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #talltimbers #jesusvassallo #archimodel #architecturemodel #soarch #critday #imadethat #architectureape #archisource #nextarch

From @ricearch #tbt to when Samantha Ding won a 2018 AIA Dallas Student Design Award. She won for her Spring 2018 final project “The Anonymous Hotel for Night Owls, Introverts, and Indulgent Over-Sleepers” from Piergianna Mazzocca’s “Unmaking the Bed” Studio. • Project description: Hotels are built to be a temporary home, yet there are many ways in which the hotel is not a home. Guests may use hotels for activities like parties, sleeping for long periods of time, and rendezvous. Therefore, the hotel’s role is most important when it is night time, as that is when people are most compelled to perform these activities. As a result, the hotel must serve to augment these activities and bolster the anonymity in which they seek to be performed. A system of layering and masks as well as the misalignment of architectural devices like corridors and stairs will help to materialize this concept. Each hotel room will have its own private point of access, and interaction with other guests will be completely avoidable. The functions of a lobby are completed by a digital system, and the only communal space is the room, from which guests can watch fellow deviants in the streets below. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #designaward #aiadallas #architectureschool #architecturemodel

Rice Architecture graduate student Yixin Zhou, recipient of the Mary Ellen Hale Lovett Traveling Fellowship, has traveled to Chengdu, Chongqing, Taipei, and Yilan to explore the dialog between traditional and contemporary, local and universal, identity and community, exemplified mainly by two architects, Jiakun LIU and Shengyuan HUANG in their effort to design for a rich environment of inhabitation. Yixin’s travel project proposes the term of "roughness" and "calibrated" roughness to characterize a parallel comparison between architecture without and with architects in these specific regions in China and studies how the powerful tools of tectonics, constructions and materiality reflect the beauty of “roughness” in modern languages. #riceuniversity #ricearchitecture #architectureschool #willtravelforarchitecture #Jiakunliu #shengyuanhuang #china

Zhaorui Xiong’s final project "Asia Society" from Professor Gordon Wittenberg’s sophomore studio “Ordinary/ Extraordinary” proposes an urban cultural institution which has exhibition, education and other cultural programs for people to learn about Asian Culture. Its three-dimensional checkerboard form is inspired by the form of traditional Chinese buildings, like the Shijia Pagoda in Shanxi, China, which demonstrates vertical stacking of individual units and the Ganxiguju in Nanjing, China which also emphasizes horizontal articulation of individual units. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #architectureschool #rajws18 #soarch #critday #rendering #section

Ron Witte’s 602 studio was tasked with designing a mixed-use complex in Kreuzberg, Germany. Lauren Turnage's final project, "Ctrl + Block + Shift," modifies the traditional Berlin block by arranging a series of 4 towers into a cruciform. Freed from perimeter restrictions, the entire site operates as public space while the private realm is situated within the bounds of each bar. In an effort to figuratively and literally shift private program into the public realm, floorplates slip away from the bounds of their bar toward another forming semi-public amenity spaces. The simple "shift technique" provides an alternate means to approach private and public space in mixed-use developments. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajws18 #architectureschool #reflectedcityplan #soarch #critday #imadethat #architectureape #thebna #archisource #ctrlblockshift
