The Dallas Architecture Forum continues its FREE panel discussions on Tuesday, Feb. 10 at 6:30 p.m. at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rogers.

Kevin Alter, Associate Dean of UT-Austin School of Architecture, will moderate the discussion of Whatever Happened to Great Rooms?
Panel Season Sponsors: Buchanan Architecture and Hossley Lighting.

In a sense, one might measure the consequence of a particular architect’s work in the legacy of rooms that s/he leaves behind. Modernism changed what we took for granted about rooms, and consequent developments in the field have often taken our collective focus elsewhere.  More than just lamenting what seems to be missing this panel takes as its focus the nature of extraordinary rooms as a locus of meaning for the field.

Panelists: Don Gatzke, Carlos Jimenez, Max Levy

The Forum offers presentations of architecture through public lectures by designers, critics, and historians; through topical discussions; and through occasional study tours to buildings and cities locally and throughout the world. The Dallas Architecture Forum serves as an inclusive arena where people interested in and concerned with the built environment, non-professionals and professionals alike, may interact intellectually and socially.
