Forum Lecture: Arthur W. Andersson

Date:February 4, 2015
Time: 6:15 PM
Location: The Magnolia Theatre
West Village
Details:

Arthur W. Andersson and F. Christian Wise founded Andersson-Wise Architects in 2001, focused on the idea that a collaborative approach to design leads to a built solution attuned to its purpose, as well as the broader issues of image and context. As Design Director, Andersson’s role as principal in charge is to provide leadership by establishing design concepts and integrating the client into the collaborative process. 

For Andersson-Wise, the fundamental elements that give buildings meaning are found in nature. The W Hotel + Residences with Austin City Limits LIVE at the Moody Theater, the Topfer Theatre at ZACH, the Dining Hall & Student Center and the Dormitory & Faculty Residences at St. Stephen’s Episcopal School, and Temple Beth Shalom on the Jewish Community Center in Austin are a short list of his recently completed projects. Andersson’s projects are full of light and atmosphere, the physical embodiment of the great Charles Moore’s influential tenet that architecture is about enhancing a sense of place.

Cost:Lectures are free for Dallas Architecture Forum members. General admission is $20. Full-time student admission is $5.
