  • Wonderful work of art by James Turrell, great artist of light and space from California. Interesting experience additional to take a look at beautiful Rice University Campus. 
  • This is a fun excuse to visit the pretty campus of Rice University, and enjoy some immersive art combined with a sunset or sunrise. The light show and music are subtle and calm, so do not expect laser...  more »
  • We actually missed the experience (NOTE: You need a reservation; and, it is closed Tuesday's) but toured the installation with the help of a Rice University student. The woman--who hails from Singapor...  more »

  • Soooo either I didn't do enough drugs to understand this... or it's a building with a square hole on top with lights that change colors every 5 mins.. that's it ..if this was for relaxation purposes then yes. Other than that no wow factor here !!
  • Love love love this experience. Poetic and community-oriented. Only problem I have is they haven't maintained the installation. Lots of rust and grime is piling up on the roof of the building which makes it look dingy. Other than that, I will always love to come here for some quiet in the bustling city. Pro-tip: You can park on campus with your flashers on. Or just take the rail in.
  • If you haven't checked this out once in your life, you should! The pictures are amazing. The vibe is suppose to help you feel zen-like and even for you to meditate, but sometimes parents bring their children that will occasionally run around and make noise. There is a student volunteer that is there to answer any questions and before the twilight begins, she gives a brief intro. You aren't suppose to take photos underneath the skyspace, but you are encouraged to photos of the lights changing once you've exited the skyspace.
  • One of my favorite places in Houston. Visit at sunset and the experience is very moving.
  • Liked the experience! Cool colors! Took some awesome pics!
