At A Glance
- Ceilings Plus Illusions Arboreal
Rice University Glasscock School of Continuing Studies is also known as the Anderson-Clarke Center and is situated on the west side of Rice's campus at Entrance 8 at Stockton and University Boulevard. The building blends into the historic character of the existing campus while also reinventing building patterns and traditions in an innovative way.
The main lounging student areas and the detached 200-seat auditorium both feature the Ceilings Plus Illusion panels. The panels are made from a non-combustible aluminum core. A veneer finish is applied then applied to give the look of wood with subtle tones and grain only nature can create.
