Rice Architecture

  • Rice School of Architecture’s highly ranked undergraduate and graduate programs consistently rank among the top 10 architecture programs list. Their high faculty: student ratio and the level of collaboration between students, faculty and staff are key differentiators among peer institutions. 

  • Key to the relaunch of the brand is an identity system and website to match Dean Sarah Whiting’s vision, a meeting point of design and discourse, theory and practice, and of Rice University and the world.

Type and color

  • The top ranked architecture program is a container of possibilities. That optimism is brought to life in the identity through a broad palette of colors that can be used interchangeably from semester to semester. 

The Grid

  • A unique circular grid was developed using concentric circles with rigorous mathematical spacing. The circular grid organizes design elements in a dynamic and collaborative way. Type and images encircle content to provide a laser focus on Rice Architecture's most important data.
