This year's design charrette will challenge participants to imagine how Rice Village will evolve. Considered one of Houston's most desirable areas, Rice Village is poised for growth, but issues with mobility and accessibility remain.

Charrette participants will receive the full program that details these issues and presents further challenges when they arrive at 9 a.m. on Aug. 2 at Hanszen College at Rice University.

Organized by rdAGENTS, the young professionals group of the Rice Design Alliance, "Visions for the Village" will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Architects, designers, artists and other individuals, as well as teams of up to five people, are invited to register. Fees will cover the cost of breakfast, lunch and refreshments throughout the day. 

A guided site visit on July 26, will precede the competition. Results of the charrette will be on display and jurors will announce awards in the commons of Hanszen College at a reception on Aug 4, 6-8 p.m.
