Join us to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Rice Design Alliance, the public programs and outreach arm of Rice Architecture. Through its creative programing, publications, and community engagement efforts—including the award-winning journal Cite, celebrating its 40th anniversary this year—RDA has made significant contributions to architectural discourse in Houston and strives to make Houston a better place for all.
With chairs Scott and Judy Nyquist, we will gather for an enchanting evening under the stars in a beautiful tent against the backdrop of the majestic Rice University campus. Guests will enjoy a festive cocktail party featuring delicious food, flowing drinks, and entertainment, as well as opportunities to connect with colleagues, friends and fellow RDA enthusiasts from the architecture, construction, engineering, and design communities. The event will also kick-off our annual programming theme, Texas Is Urban, celebrating the urbanity, diversity, and dynamism of Houston and other cities in the Texas region. All event proceeds support RDA’s programs and operations.
