Save the Date: Upcoming DCFA Events

Some of the biggest events of the year are coming up for DCFA and AIA Dallas.  Mark your calendars now so you don't miss any of them.  More detailed info after the break...

First up is AIA Dallas annual Design Awards.  On a regular basis since 1950, the Chapter has recognized Dallas architects who have achieved excellence in both built and unbuilt categories.  Past honorees include iconic Dallas buildings such as Temple Emanu-El and NorthPark Center, as well as more recent structures like One Arts Plaza and the W Dallas Victory Hotel. This year, the community is invited to gather at Victory Plaza on September 23 from 6:00-8:00 p.m. as the awards are presented.  Event admission is $30.00 ($15.00 for AIA Dallas members).

Just a few days later, AIA Dallas will welcome 400 black-tie clad revelers to the stunningly restored Union Station for CelebrateArchitecture 2009!: An Urban Renaissance.  The evening will include a silent auction, dinner by Wolfgang Puck Catering, and the presentation of Community Honor Awards to civic leaders who so actively support the creative vitality of Dallas.  All proceeds of the September 26 event benefit the Dallas Center for Architecture.  For sponsorship opportunities or information on individual tickets, please e-mail us at
