Authors in Architecture Series and Cite

The Architecture Center Houston and the Houston Public Library hold a monthly program called Authors in Architecture. The series highlights one book or publication. It is held every 3rd Thursday of each month with a presentation and discussion at the Downtown Library and a following reception and book signing at the Architecture Center.

This Thursday, June 18, the event will feature Raj Mankad, editor of Cite: The Architecture + Design Review of Houston.

Mankad will discuss the history of Cite, its mission, how article ideas are generated and writers selected, and some details about its production and distribution. Some Cite editorial committee members will also be present and contribute to a discussion of the place of architectural writing in regional and national discourse. The current issue of Cite, which focuses on new “star architecture” in Texas, will be available.

Details: Downtown Houston Public Library (500 McKinney), June 18, 6pm presentation followed by cocktail reception at ArCH (315 Capitol) at 7pm.
