Rice Design Alliance’s 2013 design charrette will challenge participants to integrate the campus of the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC). HCCC is a nonprofit arts organization located in the Museum District on Main Street. Its mission is to advance education about the product, process, and history of craft. Since opening in 2001, they have hosted over 130 exhibitions, over 85 Artist in Residences, and educated numerous children and adults through their workshops and outreach programs. The museum-quality exhibitions bring 29,000 visitors a year through their galleries, which are free and open to the public, and they reach an additional 8,000 through their educational programs.
Charrette participants will be challenged to brainstorm general solutions to integrate different aspects of the center, including ways to help increase visibility on Main Street. More information and program elements will be presented to participants on the day of the charrette.
rdAGENTS, Rice Design Alliance’s young professional group, invites interested parties to participate in the juried competition. An entry fee of $25 for RDA members and $35 for non-members will cover breakfast, lunch, and refreshments throughout the day. Jurors for the competition will announce the winning designs at an evening reception at the Rice School of Architecture, open to the public, on Monday, August 5, 2013.
