Dallas Architecture Forum presents Mohsen Mostafavi :: March 22, 2012


The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to announce that Dean of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Mohsen Mostafavi will speak for the Rose Family Lecture on Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 7 p.m. at Magnolia Theatre, 3699 McKinney Ave. in Uptown Dallas.

Dean Mostafavi will address the Forum on the important topic of “Ecological Urbanism”. While climate change, sustainable architecture, and green technologies have become increasingly topical, a coherent understanding of the sustainability of the city is much less developed. An ecological approach is urgently needed as an imaginative and practical method for addressing existing as well as new cities. Ecological urbanism considers the city with multiple instruments and with an interdisciplinary worldview that is fluid in scale and focus. Design provides the synthetic key to connect ecology with an urbanism that is not in contradiction with its environment.

Tickets are $20 per lecture for general admission and $5 for students (with ID). Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. Dallas Architecture Forum members receive free admission to all regular Forum lectures as a benefit of membership, and AIA members can earn one hour of CE credit for each lecture. For more information, visit www.dallasarchitectureforum.org, email director@dallasarchitectureforum.org or call 214-764-2406.

Dallas Architecture Forum Panel Discussion:: January 24


Dallas Architecture Forum, the non-profit organization dedicated to providing challenging and on-going public discourse about architecture will present a moderated panel discussion on New Humanism: Taking a Stand – A Report on Ghost 13 on Tuesday, Jan. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers, Ste. 100. Admission is free. Andrew VERNOOY, AIA, Dean of the Architecture School at Texas Tech University, will serve as Moderator. For more information on the Dallas Architecture Forum, visit www.dallasarchitectureforum.org. For questions about the Forum, call 214-764-2406.

Within the context of New Technologies in Architecture—new materials, new geometries, and new structural strategies—Ghost 13 took a stand on the principles of Place, Craft and Community. Initiated as a retrospective of Brian Mackay-Lyons’ innovative 12 years of physically engaged, yet theoretically driven, architectural production on his stunning site west of Halifax, Ghost 13 listed among its participants some of the most talented architects practicing today. Benchmarked by presentations from Kenneth Frampton, Juhani Pallasmaa and Glenn Murcutt, the week of inspiring discussions naturally lead to speculations about the larger agenda. Was Ghost 13 merely a thoughtful reflection on beautiful architecture or did it make a claim for New Humanism within the context of an exceedingly technically driven culture? You decide, as attendees discuss the issues explicitly, and implicitly, generated by the conference.

Dallas Architecture Forum presents FREE panel with Julie Cohn :: March 9, 2010


The Dallas Architecture Forum continues its FREE panel discussions on Tuesday, March 9 at 6:30 p.m. at Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100. The topic is “On Collaboration.” Julie Cohn will lead the panel. Designers, architects and artists often times function as de facto therapists in the creative process. They facilitate dialogue between clients, product designers, manufacturers etc. enabling through collaboration the creation of a final product that is a seamless sum of its parts. It is no accident that the collaborative model is most often the underlying structure of a successful building, design, invention or work of art.
