Houston design magazine puts archives online

Twenty-eight years of Cite: The Architecture + Design Review of Houston are now available free at citemag.org. What is the history of the Houston skyline and Buffalo Bayou? How did the Hermann Park plan develop? What are the Fifth Ward's secrets? Who was Sally Walsh? The answers are online.

Published by the Rice Design Alliance since 1982, Cite mixes high design with down-and-dirty civic engagement.

"Our built environment shapes our daily experience of life, sometimes our very survival," explains Kimberly Hickson, Rice Design Alliance president-elect and architect with Gensler. "Making the archives of Cite available at no cost is an important service to Houston."

The Rice Design Alliance is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of architecture, urban design, and the built environment in the Houston region through educational programs, active programs to initiate physical improvements, and the publication of Cite: The Architecture + Design Review of Houston and OffCite.org. Membership is open to the public. More information is available at www.ricedesignalliance.org or by calling (713) 348-4876.
