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."
