Renowned Spanish architects to speak at RDA event in Houston

Rice Design Alliance (RDA), together with the Rice School of Architecture, the AIA Houston Chapter, and the Architecture Center Houston Foundation, will welcome Luis Mansilla and Emilio Tuñón to Houston, Texas to present the annual Sally Walsh lecture on April 7, 2010, titled “Making MUSAC.”

The lecture is dedicated to the memory of distinguished Houston interior designer Sally Walsh, who is widely credited with bringing modern design to Houston. The lecture honors Walsh’s groundbreaking foray into modern design by bringing the freshest new design minds to Houston. This year’s lecturers are the partners of their eponymous, Madrid-based firm, Mansilla and Tuñón. Mansilla and Tuñón designed the MUSAC, the Contemporary Art Museum of Castilla and León, which won the 2007 European Untion Prize for Contemporary Architecture.

Emilio Tuñón and Luis Mansilla are professors in the architectural design department of the Architecture School of Madrid, and have been visiting professors at several universities across the globe. The lecture will begins at 7 p.m. at Brown Auditorium, The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, 1001 Bissonnet. This event is free and open to the public. Seating is limited and on a first-come, first-served basis starting at 6 pm the evening of the lecture. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early.

RDA will gladly make special accommodations for anyone needing assistance to attend the lecture. Please contact RDA directly. A minimum of two week’s notice is appreciated. Call RDA at 713-348-4876.
