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


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.
