Welcome to the Dallas Center for Architecture!

At DCFA, we work to encourage the conversation about why architecture matters to YOU. We seek to foster the public's understanding of the power of architecture to enrich our city and our lives through this online resource as well as the programs, exhibits and tours that the Center presents. You can make a difference...come join us!

DCFA and AIA Dallas Announce New Home
We are thrilled to announce that the Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation and our partner organization, AIA Dallas, have selected a location for our next home for the next ten years. The doors will open in August of 2018. We have selected the mid-century architectural icon Republic Center, located at the northwest corner of St. Paul and Pacific, as that new home. Located in the heart of downtown Dallas, this new storefront location will center DCFA even more fully within the core of the city, elevating us to be much more visible, more pedestrian-friendly, and more engaged with our constituents and the larger community.
