Chaired by Scott and Judy Nyquist

Join us for RDA’s Gala 2022: The Resilient City on Saturday, January 29, 2022, at the new POST Houston. With Chairs Scott and Judy Nyquist, RDA looks forward to bringing back our annual event in person to celebrate Houston as a vibrant, diverse, and resilient city that continues to function as a laboratory for urban experimentation. As we look back on the challenges the city has faced in recent years, we want to recognize the bold ways in which Houstonians continue to advocate for positive, meaningful change for its citizens through design.  
RDA’s annual Gala is Houston’s premier design event, celebrating leaders in the architecture, cultural, engineering, design, and construction communities. Event proceeds directly support RDA’s educational mission. 

As the public programs and outreach arm for Rice Architecture for almost 50 years, RDA continues to educate, connect, and bring awareness to pressing urban and design issues facing the built environment in Houston and globally.
