About OffCite

Our Mission

The Rice Design Alliance and the Cite editorial committee launched OffCite.org in December 2008. OffCite features the authoritative and thoughtful voices found in the print magazine, Cite: The Architecture + Design Review of Houston and seeks to bring additional writers to the discussion. The blog features reviews, architectural news roundups, photo essay outtakes, podcasts, and more. If bulldozers threaten a historic building, if a new transit plan is announced, the blog aims to provide a forum for reflection, analysis, and action. OffCite is supported in part by a grant from the Susan Vaughan Foundation.

The opinions expressed on Offcite.org do not necessarily represent the views of the board of directors of the Rice Design Alliance.

We would love to hear your thoughts about OffCite.

Juicy tips and ideas for new posts are welcome too.
