19 Sep 2013 – The RSA/RDA fall lecture series, RE:ARCHITECTURE [NSFW], starts next week with architect Meejin Yoon!
Meejin Yoon is founder of MY Studio, co-founder of Höweler + Yoon and an Associate Professor in the Department of Architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Yoon has been awarded the 2008 United States Artist Award in Architecture and Design, the 2007 Architect League’s Emerging Voices Award, and the 2005 Rome Prize in Design.
The lecture series, curated by Rice Assistant Professor of Architecture Troy Schaum, features young firms that are building in unique ways and refuse to play it safe. The series will highlight a new generation of architects attempting to engage architecture by operating nimbly across scales, methods, techniques, and sites of work. Framed by the popular online tag, Re: Architecture [Not Safe For Work] investigates how architects’ assumptions regarding safe boundaries for contemporary disciplinary investigation simultaneously limit and propel their creative practices.
We hope that you can join us next Wednesday, September 25 at the MFAH for the lecture at 7 p.m. in the Brown Auditorium and a pre-lecture reception starting at 6 p.m. sponsored by Clark Condon Associates in the Caroline Weiss Law Building lobby.

Chinese Architecture: 中国建筑
A lecture series focusing on the impact of the thirty-year building explosion in China.
“The lecture series will be a great opportunity to see design being done in China in the context of tremendous growth,” says RDA board member and Chinese Architecture steering committee member Camilo Parra. Read up on the series and learn how much China’s growth parallels Houston’s own with a great piece in the Houston Chronicle written by fellow board member, Christof Spieler.
The series will take place each Wednesday from September 28 through October 19
Rice Design Alliance Lecture
MFAH Bookstore Presents a Lecture by Lars Lerup
As a friend of RDA, we think you will be interested in attending a lecture and book signing with Lars Lerup, professor and former dean of the Rice School of Architecture, presented by The MFAH Bookstore.
Loved by its inhabitants, Houston is defined by both huge potential and difficult challenges. In his latest book, One Million Acres & No Zoning, Lerup examines America´s fourth-largest city as a test-case for twenty-first-century urbanism and our understanding of unregulated cities everywhere. As he writes, “Contemporary Houston is neither city nor metropolis, but an urban condition of a third kind.”

Free Admission (Limited Seating)
