Moody Center

Moody Center for the Arts is a 50,000 square feet-$30 million project in Houston, Texas located on the campus of Rice University. The multi-disciplinary arts building opened February 24, 2017. Architect Michael Maltzan’s two-story structure combines a substantial jumble of intersecting rectangles clad in charcoal-gray brick and a glass-walled first floor. Cut-outs in two of the building’s corners hold steel sculptures inspired by Rice’s lush tree canopy provide an iconic feature.
