Located in the nation’s fourth largest and most diverse city, Rice Architecture is consistently ranked among the top 10 architecture schools in the nation for undergraduate and graduate study. Unique to Rice Architecture is the city itself, which draws a diverse, international group of faculty and student thinkers and leaders. This positions Rice Architecture at the forefront of global discourse on architecture, culture, and diversity.

The school is constantly investing itself in situating architecture in the larger world, through engagements that include: Construct design-build projects in the community, as well as the international ambit of Rice Architecture Paris. The Preceptorship program places seniors in architecture offices worldwide, while the legendary publications Architecture at Rice situates the research by architects within the public realm. As such, the school produces both practicing architects and public intellectuals—or, “scholar-practitioners,” who are equally inspired both by artifacts and arguments of architecture.
