When: Wednesday, February 19, 2014, at 7 p.m.; pre-lecture reception begins in the Audrey Jones Beck Building at 6 p.m.
Where: Brown Auditorium, Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet

The series, which will bring three other firms to Houston, is curated by Rice School of Architecture Assistant Professor Jesús Vassallo: “I think that these firms’ practices are captivating because they are experimental without renouncing building things in the real world, producing work that is intellectually stimulating as well as sensually powerful.”
