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.

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.

Presentation: Stripping of Character
Join the AIA Dallas Communities by Design Committee and the Dallas Center for Architecture for a new co-sponsored series based on topics and articles in our award-winning Columns magazine. This first panel discussion is inspired by an article in the Winter 2018 issue by urban planner David Whitley, Assoc. AIA on “Character, Stripping, and the Evolution of Place.” David will moderate a lively conversation with a group of developers, designers, and planners on the evolution of downtown Dallas from a collection of 1980’s post-Modern towers to a more street- and user-friendly neighborhood.
