An opening reception will be held on the evening of September 10 at the Dallas Center for Architecture.The evening’s events will include a book signing and presentation by Vidal. The reception will begin at 6:00 p.m. with remarks at 6:30 p.m. and a book signing to follow. Copies of the book will be available for sale that evening. A donation of $10 is requested at the door. To RSVP, please e-mail info@DallasCFA.com.

An interactive exhibition with a surprising touch of augmented reality, ENCOUNTERS is an architectural installation created to discover, explore,and present the work of LVA—a celebration of their vision and major projects over the last ten years, including the recently-inaugurated Terminal 2 at London’s Heathrow Airport,which opened its doors this June and which has been officially named Terminal 2: The Queen’s Terminal. The exhibition was conceived to create a meditational space in which one may experience the architectural queries and needs of the 21st century through the critical eye of unconventional architect, Luis Vidal.

Featuring a “vertical garden” planted by hand (6,000 “flowers,” 80 projects and 18 cities), ENCOUNTERS will take the viewer through a personal journey along the conceptual map of Luis Vidal and his collaborators. A downloadable application created specifically for the exhibit was designed by a research team at The Polytechnic University of Valencia in Spain based on the technology of optical and augmented reality. A camera on the mobile device or tablet and the inference of the 3D position will enable the display of audio-visual content and will elevate the exhibition experience by allowing visitors to interact and discover additional content, both informative and fun.

The exhibition will run September 10 through October 31 at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100. The exhibition is free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m.-6:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. There will be extended evening hours until 8:00 p.m. on the following Thursday evenings: September 18, October 9 and October 23. The exhibition will be open on the following Saturdays from 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.: September 20, October 4 and October 18.
