On October 20, hundreds of partygoers joined us at the newest jewel in the Uptown skyline, McKinney and Olive, for a memorable evening. With delicious hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, guests enjoyed creating a photographic flipbook and analysis by our "lipsologist" as they bid on more than 150 silent auction items ranging from art and furniture to accessories and one-of-a-kind experiences. All in all, the event raised $78,500 in support of DCFA educational programming, including walking tours and events, youth programs, and scholarships and traveling fellowships. This year, a portion of the ROCKITECTURE proceeds will benefit the DCFA Diversity in Architecture Scholarship, an effort critical to the future of the design profession.

One of the most vital programs that the Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation administers is its scholarship and fellowship program for student and young architects. Each year, $10,000 or more is distributed to students and architects from across the state and country. This includes the traveling fellowship program: three awards granted for senior architecture students or recent graduates to travel and further their research. Here is a report from Eduardo Castaneda who used his funding from the Mary Kolb Berglund Traveling Fellowship to study urbanization in Asia.
