Andrew Colopy’s fall 2017 Totalization studio studied accessory dwellings as a viable model for increasing density and socioeconomic diversity in areas of single-family homes where extensive replacement of the urban fabric is neither possible nor desirable. The bungalow neighborhood surrounding the Menil Collection, for instance, is an integral part of the institution itself, but has come under pressure from development and gentrification. As part of Rice Architecture Construct, the studio partnered with the Menil to develop hypothetical yet viable strategies to replace the neighborhood’s lost and aging garage apartments with accessory dwelling units (ADUs). The studio was framed conceptually by the “solid surface,” an instrumental logic seeking to synthesize the surface of representation with the thickness of performance, including the configuration of space within and without. Working across 35 individual sites, students developed adaptive prototypes in parallel with digitally fabricated plywood envelope systems to examine both novel aesthetic and social relationships—among units, between primary and secondary dwellings, and within the broader urban context—that challenged conceptually, functionally and qualitatively the status of the ADU as an accessory condition. The aim is greater independence from the bungalows—and thus a new layer of urban character within the neighborhood—alongside new spatial configurations that together, might serve as a model for development throughout Houston or beyond.

Rice Architecture Paris participated in the XDGA Charrette. The students worked in groups for this brief project which investigated the concept of “the void” both in regards to Mies’ Farnsworth House in Illinois and Ludwig Wittgenstein’s house in Vienna. Each project looked at one of these two projects as a starting point, and interpreted it in regards to their own definition of a void. #ricearchitectureparis  #architectureschool #xdgacharrette #charrette

What a year! Hurricane Harvey, Houston Astros win the World Series, and snow. (The last snow was in 2009.) Thanks to @brandngram for this fantastic shot of our home aka Anderson Hall. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #andersonall #houstonweather #snowinhouston

Rice Architecture students Madeleine Pelzel, Stacy Su, Beril Uzmen and each of their teams presented their project at Rice University’s Design for America Final review this past weekend. Beril’s team, Access Rice, created a checklist for event planners at Rice University to make social events accessible to physically disabled students. Stacy’s team, Back2Back, continued a project that focuses on creating space efficient backpacks with interior organizational systems and a kickstand for elementary school students (West U) as well as another backpack and plans for usability and longitudinal testing. Madeleine’s team, Team Crosstalk, are designing for the transition to self-driving cars. They presented the research and insights that will inform their final prototype, which will be presented at the Fiat Chrysler headquarters in the beginning of February. Their project is currently focused on enhancing safety at intersections before autonomous cars are the primary automobile on the road.  #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #designforamerica #designforgood #design

Wortham Fellow Piergianna Mazzocca’s Making the Bed final review with Reto Geiser @molletgeiser and Fabiola Lopez-Durán from Rice University Department of Art History. The seminar, called Making the Bed, historicizes, problematizes and surveys the spaces occupied by beds in general and by hospital beds specifically. Beds are used as a metaphorical frame for re-reading the history of modern architecture, its good intentions, its love affair with medicine, and the role that medical knowledge still plays in everyday life. By analyzing a host of theoretical and historical sources, the seminar explores the articulation of concepts and the aesthetic sensibilities that coincide with modernism and the primacy that this movement gave to medical knowledge. #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #makingthebed #architectureschool

The McGregor Computer Lab is donated by Tanis and Bill (’65) McGregor, who helped realize The Class of 1965 Scholarship, and created an endowment for our newly named McGregor computer Lab. The computer lab serves as a seminar room as well as a computer lab for our faculty and students. We are thankful to our alums for building a brighter future for our students. If you would like to give to Rice Architecture, we have multiple ways that you can support what we do.

Flashback Friday to Margaret Hall’s project “Embedded Public” from Michelle Chang’s Ambient Architecture Studio from Spring 2017. For the studio’s final assignment, the projects consider scale, proportion, positive, and negative space in relation to the architectural qualities of contrast, evenness, foreground, and background. 📷 by @nashb #ricearchitecture #riceuniversity #rajws17 #architecturemodel #embeddedpublic #architectureschool #fbf
