ROCKITECTURE 2016 Raises Almost $80,000
On October 20, hundreds of partygoers joined us at the newest jewel in the Uptown skyline, McKinney and Olive, for a memorable evening. With delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, guests enjoyed creating a photographic flipbook and analysis by our "lipsologist" as they bid on more than 150 silent auction items ranging from art and furniture to accessories and one-of-a-kind experiences. All in all, the event raised $78,500 in support of DCFA educational programming, including walking tours and events, youth programs, and scholarships and traveling fellowships. This year, a portion of the ROCKITECTURE proceeds will benefit the DCFA Diversity in Architecture Scholarship, an effort critical to the future of the design profession.

Featured Event

Exhibition: Building Toys
Lincoln Logs. TinkerToys. Erector Sets. LEGO. And, of course, the humble wooden block. The timeline of the toys that we’ve used to build our fantasy buildings, towns and towers is long and varied. The Dallas Center for Architecture explores this experience in Building Toys and Toy Buildings: Architecture Through A Child’s Eyes, open December 10, 2016 through January 21, 2017.
