The Rice Design Alliance Architecture Tour will take place from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, March 29, and Sunday, March 30, 2014. Titled “Additionally,” this spring’s tour will take RDA members and their guests to eight Houston residences, dating from 1885 to 1964, that have been given substantial additions in recent years by local architecture firms. RDA has organized tours every year since 1975 to help Houstonians experience firsthand the most interesting works of architecture and landscape and interior design in the city. This March, tourgoers will see how local firms have increased the size and functional space of the older residences, introduced technologically advanced building materials, and brought together contrasting architectural styles and periods. The residences and firms responsible for the original house as well as the addition are as follows: 5219 South Braeswood 1964, Arthur Steinberg; 2014, Stern + Bucek 5503 Sturbridge 1960, Marshall S.
