The Dallas Center for Architecture’s current exhibition features the recipients of the 2012 AIA Dallas Design Awards. Recognizing outstanding work by local architects here and across the country, the AIA Dallas Design Awards celebrate the architects, clients, and consultants who work together to achieve design excellence. Comprised of both built and yet to be realized projects, the show spans a range of building types, including residences, schools, healthcare facilities, churches and civic buildings.

Join us on Thursday, January 31 at 6:00 p.m. as we take a more in-depth look at three of the excellent projects garnering awards. Architects will present brief virtual tours of their projects, followed by a panel discussion from both perspectives on what it takes to end up with excellent design in a building. The program will provide recipients of the AIA Dallas Design Awards an opportunity to present award winning projects in detail and communicate the value of design to fellow architects and the public.

Projects to be featured are:

  • Auberty Ranch-designed by NIMMO American Studio for Progressive Architecture
    Auberty Ranch was developed by a local artist to be a studio, residence and retreat for artists in the hopes that it would provide a place for inspiration and reflection. Surrounded by nature and a wide range of wildlife Near Glen Rose, Texas, the design incorporates building techniques and materials familiar to the region.
  • Kathlyn Joy Gilliam Collegiate Academy- designed by SHW Group
    A part of DISD, Gilliam Academy creates a learning environment reminiscent of a multi-building collegiate campus while providing the supervision appropriate for high school students. A combination of structured and more unstructured spaces, the building is made up of a series of areas centered around a common room. Its design offers a glimpse at the new design ideas permeating education today.
  • The Cottages at Hickory Crossing- designed by bcWorkshop
    Located on a three-acre site less than a half-mile from downtown, the Cottages at Hickory Crossing will provide an innovative union of permanent housing and support services for the 50 most chronic cases of homelessness in Dallas. Designed with significant participation by stakeholders, the project serves as a model for sustainable urban living, with an anticipated LEED Platinum rating.

We will begin the evening at 6:00 p.m. with a brief reception. The program will begin promptly at 6:30.

Cost: $10 donation requested at the door.
