The Department of Architecture invites you to join us for the next installment of the Tuesday Talks speaker series with Brett Rhode at Boston Design Week on Tuesday, September 28th at 6pm EST via Zoom.


Explore both built and in-progress work by nationally-recognized architect Brett Rhode of the award-winning Austin-based firm Rhode Partners. As the tallest residential tower west of the Mississippi River, Rhode's The Independent prioritizes views of the city and spacious interior configurations. Rhode's experience with designing for cities in the wake of climate change will spark his discussion with the head of MassArt's Graduate Architecture Program, Paul Hajian.


​Brett Rhode is well known for his ability to design and manage large, complex projects, producing award-winning buildings within budget and schedule constraints. Brett honed his skills for over a decade in New York City on complex international commissions in the offices of I.M Pei and Phillip Johnson. In Austin as a Vice President at Page Southerland Page, Brett worked on healthcare and civic projects for eight years before founding Rhode Partners in 2005. Rhode Partners is organized in an open studio environment to facilitate team communication and easy client access.


Rhode Partners is an award-winning, full-service architecture firm specializing in master planning, architecture, and interior design, with extensive experience in delivering high-quality civic, multi-family residential, hotel, office, and retail projects with timeless materials and longevity. The boutique firm thrives on collaboration to transcend traditional production silos. Rhode Partners’ team of passionate, thoughtful professionals share expertise in navigating municipal permitting processes and utilize the latest in modeling and construction software to streamline communication across disciplines and in the field.


This event is free and open to the public. We look forward to seeing you there!
