The Moody Center for the Arts at Rice University is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to the advancement of transdisciplinary collaboration for students between the arts, sciences, and humanities. The 50,000-sf facility houses a collection of instructional, production, performance, and exhibition spaces. Flexible spaces bring diverse programmatic functions into contact with one another and allow for extending views out toward the campus. While recalling the architectural history of the campus, the building’s design features bricks coated in magnesium oxide. It is distinctive of its own time and modern in spirit. The LEED Silver building defines a new southern campus gateway and an expanded arts and cultural core on Rice’s campus.
