10 Decades

10 Decades constructs the one-hundred year history of Rice School of Architecture (RSA) in Houston, Texas. RSA’s curriculum and culture has transitioned and transformed from the Beaux-Arts traditions of early twentieth century architectural education, through the influences of Modernism, and advances in material and information technologies, to the now contemporary, fast-paced, global moment.

This exhibition was made possible by the generous financial contribution of: Rice School of Architecture, Rice Design Alliance, Architecture Center Houston Foundation, Barbara Amelio, HOK, John Hawkins, Lonnie Hoogeboom and Betsy Strauch JD Miner Systems, LLC, Christina and Mark Mitchell, Louis H. Skidmore, Jr.
