At the core of Rice Design Alliance is Cite: The Architecture and Design Review of Houston, which has been in circulation since 1982. Cite features a wide variety of thought-provoking content, including reviews, architectural news, opinion pieces, interviews, and photo essays, and aim to provide an independent forum for reflection, analysis, and action.

The most recent issue, Cite 104, considers the legacy of Rice Design Alliance with interviews of some of the founding members and early contributors to Cite. Guest edited by Reto Geiser, Cite 104 examines Houston in its glory and its folly. Essays highlight proposed projects never built, the establishment of the Johnson Space Center, the Houston punk rock scene in the 1980s, the problem of housing, and more. New photography and art by Houston-area artists round out the issue.


This program is made possible through the generous support of the Betty R. and George F. Pierce Jr., FAIA, Fund; the William B. Coleman Jr. Colloquium Fund for Architecture; and the Wm. W. Caudill Lecture Series Fund.
