Rice School of Architecture ‘Shotgun’ installation examines past, present and future of small houses

0

The exhibition by students of the Rice School of Architecture (RSA) in collaboration with Tokyo firm and small-house specialist Atelier Bow-Wow opened with a reception Friday evening. The house was packed – figuratively and literally – by people interested in learning about Houston’s famous row houses and how they came to be.

The project began as a seminar taught by Rice assistant professor of architecture Jesús Vassallo last fall and was intended from the start as a comprehensive look at shotgun houses: small, thin structures so named because they have an unimpeded view from the front door to the back.
