Rice University and Rice School of Architecture both celebrated their centennial in 2012. A treasure trove of great architecture, the timeless campus features designs by Cram, Goodhue & Ferguson; John Staub; William Ward Watkin; Michael Graves; Kieren Timberlake; Ricardo Bofill; Cesar Pelli; Lake/Flato Architects; and many other local and internationally renowned architects.

Also on the tour are large scale art works by James Turrell and Michael Heizer. From Lovett Hall to Brochstein Pavilion, this tour will look at some of the more unique, hidden, important and historical features of Rice University's campus. In addition to the architecture, the tour will explore the context surrounding each building, the quads, courts and axes, how these elements work together to shape collegiate space.

Meet on the front lawn of Lovett Hall, building 46 on the Rice University map. Recommended parking in Rice University Visitor Parking Lot L or Founder's Court Visitor's Lot. Credit card is required to access parking.
