29th Annual RDA Architecture Tour
Saturday and Sunday
March 25 and 26, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Presented by the Rice Design Alliance in collaboration with Buffalo Bayou Partnership
The Rice Design Alliance 2006 architecture tour investigates the varied and fascinating approaches that architects and landscape architects have taken when designing houses and landscapes on Buffalo Bayou and its tributaries.
The tour is open only to RDA and Buffalo Bayou Partnership members and guests. RDA Memberships beginning at $35 can be purchased at any of the houses on the tour and include one complimentary tour ticket (Family level and above include two complimentary tickets). Tickets for all eight houses are $20; $10 for students; and $15 for senior citizens (65 years and older).
In conjunction with the Houses on the Bayou Tour, Rice Design Alliance presents a civic forum on the history of Buffalo Bayou and the engineering that has and will continue to affect the preservation or destruction of the natural habitat and valuable community resource. Two tour homeowners will describe their experiences of living on the bayou and how they foresee its future.
Admission is free and open to the public.
