The Remarkable Architecture of Dallas & Fort Worth

October 28-30, 2016 (Subject to availability & participation minimums)

You are invited to join Friends of Architecture Santa Fe for an exciting and very special long weekend in Dallas, Fort Worth and environs. Featuring private and public buildings and spaces by Tadao Ando, Thom Mayne, Norman Foster, Rem Koolhaas, Tod Williams and Billie Tsien, Renzo Piano, Brad Cloepfil, Santiago Calatrava, Antoine Predock, Edward Larrabee Barnes, I.M. Pei, Philip Johnson, Fay Jones, and Edward Durell Stone, the Dallas Metroplex contains a treasure trove of architectural riches.

Tour scholar is architect Mark Gunderson, AIA. In private practice in Fort Worth for over 30 years, Gunderson has a renowned art and architecture archive and library. Currently, he serves as Vice-President of Panels/Symposia for the Dallas Architecture Forum. As a past president of both AIA Fort Worth and the Dallas Architectural Foundation, Gunderson is an acclaimed writer, teacher, and guide for select groups of architectural aficionados. His long time relationships in the region afford our group unparalleled access to spectacular private homes, stunning art collections, and the patrons, developers, and designers of the best architecture Dallas has to offer.

Our short list includes:

  • Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House (Sir Norman Foster, 2009)
  • Dee and Charles Wyly Theatre (Rem Koolhaas, 2009)
  • Morton H. Meyerson Symphony Center (I.M. Pei, 1989)
