UNSW Built Environment: In Memoriam – Kevin Rice, 1932-2011

13 01 2011

We are sad to to report that highly acclaimed architect Kevin Rice has recently passed away.

Rice was one of UNSW’s first Alumnus members, graduating with honours in architecture in 1955. He went on to become a great architect, working on notable Sydney high-rise buildings, including the Queen Victoria Building, the HSBC Tower in George Street, the Zenith Centre in Chatswood and the Sacred Heart Hospice in Darlinghurst.

Rice served as President of the NSW Chapter of the Australian Institute of Architects from 1986 to 1988, and was An associate of the Royal Institute of British Architects, and a Life Fellow of the Royal Australian Institute of Architects. He also received anAlumni Award from the University of NSW in 1988.

In 2004, Rice was awarded a Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) for his service to architecture.

Our thoughts are with Kevin Rice’s family at this time. If you are interested in reading more about Rice and his achievements, please refer to the below article featured in today’s Sydney Morning Herald.
