Barry Rice


Barry Rice studied at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, as well as the University of  
Westminster in London. Rice obtained his architectural license in London with ARCUK, becoming a member of the Royal Institute of British Architects in 1982. Rice brought his international experience to New York City working for Robert A.M. Stern Architects.  After a
dozen years with RAMSA, Rice established his own firm in New York City in 1999.

With over 30 years of experience, Barry Rice has worked on a variety of projects including high-rise residential and commercial buildings, private houses, hotels, theaters, as well as institutional and recreational facilities. 

Rice’s contemporary designs maintain a harmonious dialogue with the neighboring built environment. This has led Barry Rice Architects to specialize in New York City’s most historic districts and post-industrial neighborhoods.
