Pliable: Rice Design Alliance and Rice Architecture Fall 2017 Lecture Series @ The MATCH
Oct 25 @ 7:00 pm
Pliable: Rice Design Alliance and Rice Architecture Fall 2017 Lecture Series @ The MATCH | Houston | Texas | United States

The Pliable series features three internationally renowned practitioners who advocate for the immediacy of material investigations and fabrication in architecture, whether low-tech or high-tech, analog or digital. Through their research and design, all three offer up nimble responses to unforeseen material and fabrication challenges and opportunities. On the surface, these three designers are linked by their innovative work with textiles. Upon closer examination, they are reshaping contemporary practice in compelling, provocative ways through material-based research and with repercussions for all design fields.

Rice Architecture and Rice Design Alliance presents Pliable, the Fall 2017 Lecture Series. Curated by Dawn Finley, Associate Professor at Rice Architecture.
