“Deconstructing the Design Process”

23 November 2010

Designers discuss openly and honestly the origins, complexities 
and contradictions of their own design process. How does one 
begin that initial sketch on a blank sheet of paper? Where does 
that moment of clarity come from? How much of a factor is intuition?
 How is this process refined and tested?

Panelists will be Calvin Chen, Eurico Francisco, George Gintole, Mark Gunderson, and Kevin Sloan.

“Affordable Housing and Historic Preservation”

14 December 2010

Affordable housing and historic preservation are natural allies, utilizing existing building stock and retaining cultural identity and heritage for a number of Americans. But too often these worthy goals do not work in productive harmony.  The panelists will consider the interests of historic preservation and affordability from environmental, social, and economic perspectives.


“The Design of Sustainability – Science and Sensibility”

8 February 2011

While the practice of sustainability goes way back, it is a current topic 
these days. We will be discussing sustainability in multiple contexts, 
be it the newest technology, lifestyle, or time tested regional design, 
and perhaps, how all of these can flow together to present a new aesthetic and approach to the built environment


“The Trinity River Project: An Update”

22 March 2011

This panel will explore the continuing vision 
for the Trinity River - the complexities, realities and commitment to 
recover, through beauty, the source of our city


“Location, Location, Location”

5 April 2011
The panelists will discuss how a site inspires design and how an architect re-imagines that site


The Dallas Architecture Forum provides a continuing and challenging public discourse on architecture and urban design in – and for – the Dallas area. 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.

Our membership comes from business, development, public affairs, education, the arts and from the design fields.

This mix of interests and ties is one of the strengths we bring to our involvement with architecture. Support for the Forum’s programs is a grassroots effort, coming from membership subscriptions at all levels and from the generous sponsorship of Forum seasons and events. Visit dallasarchitectureforum.org or call 214-764-2406.
