RDA holds a Spring and Fall lecture series each year. The lectures introduced Houston to Frank Gehry, Cesar Pelli, Helmut Jahn, Steven Holl, and Rem Koolhaas before they became international superstars. We have also presented future Pritzker Prize winners, including Richard Meier, Aldo Rossi, Robert Venturi, Rafael Moneo, Renzo Piano, and Glenn Murcutt. More recently, RDA has expanded its lecture offerings into more aspects of design, including engineering, industrial and graphic design, and design activism.
