Film Screening: Heatherwick

1909 Woodall Rodgers Frwy.
Dallas, Texas 75201
We will close out the 2014 Architecture Film Series with a special holiday open house and screening of a short documentary on designer Thomas Heatherwick, currently the subject of an exhibition at the Nasher Sculpture Center. The film centers around a daring proposal, first made by actress Joanna Lumley, to build a garden-topped pedestrian bridge across the river Thames. You'll see some of his other daring creations as well: the cauldron for the 2012 Olympic Games, a provocative redesign of the London double decker bus, chairs resembling oversized spinning tops, and the giant "hairy" cube he built to represent Britain at the World Expo.
The 6:30 p.m. screening will be preceded by an extended reception/Holiday Open House beginning at 5:30 p.m. Join us for food and beverages and take the opportunity to see our current exhibition Building Toys and Toy Buildings: Architecture Through A Child's Eyes. A $10 donation is requested at the door. RSVP to info@DallasCFA.com
|Cost:||$10 donation at the door.|
