This music school completes the campus of Rice University, construction of which began in the 19th century, and to which James Stirling and Cesar Pelli have also contributed. The programme comprises the construction of an administrative block, classrooms, rehearsal rooms, a studio for a large organ and an auditorium for 1.000 spectators. The different constructions are grouped around a number of interior courtyards, in the style of cloisters, composing a complex which gives the impression of being a single building. The construction in red brick and the simplified classicism of the architectonic vocabulary are in keeping with American traditions and with other examples of the architecture of this Texan university.
