RDA 2018 Gala, Honoring Harris County Judge Ed Emmett
November 17, 2018
On November 17, 2018, Rice Design Alliance honored the true meaning of PUBLIC. Of public service, of public space, of the right we all have to the public realm and the collective responsibility each of us carry to take care of it. In this spirit, the 2018 Gala honored the leadership of Harris County Judge Ed Emmett with Rice Design Alliance’s Award for Design Excellence. Judge Emmett’s contributions to shaping and protecting the urban landscape of Houston and our region through advocacy in design only reinforce the notion of how each and every one of us are keepers of our city.
Whether we are architects, engineers, developers, designers, or public officials, we are all participating citizens. We all shape Houston through the smallest of our actions.
