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.
Exhibition: The Aga Khan Award
The Aga Khan Award for Architecture is given every three years to projects that set new standards of excellence in architecture, planning practices, historic preservation and landscape architecture. Through its efforts, the Award seeks to identify and encourage building concepts that successfully address the needs and aspirations of societies across the world, in which Muslims have a significant presence.
