Our lectures and lecture series engage a wide variety of professionals and thinkers from different fields who are looking at the built environment in innovative and provocative ways. 

We hold our lectures in different locations throughout Houston – inside and outside the Rice University campus – and collaborate with Rice Architecture faculty, as well as local and international organizations and institutions to bring the most exciting and relevant design thinking to Houston audiences.
