The 70,000-seat Rice Stadium, designed in 1950 by Hermon Lloyd & W.B. Morgan and Milton McGinty, is of reinforced concrete made graceful by lithe, 30-inch diameter columns supporting the upper decks. The monolithic landmark at the west end of the Rice University campus is perhaps one of the best buildings of its kind in the country. In the early 1970s, AIA Houston recognized this among others as a "Vintage Building" — the precursor to the 25 Year Award.
