Turkey Week News Round-Up

Turkey Week News Round-Up

It's a short week and we've not had much time for blogging so far.  (Don't worry...we're still working on a post on the great lecture by Jeanne Gang last week at the Dallas Architecture Forum. Stay tuned for that next week.)  In the meantime, here are a few tidbits to tide you over Thanksgiving.

First off, we're curious as to the architecture here in the area that you're most thankful for.  We started that conversation on our Facebook page.  (Are you following us yet?)  But let's continue it here.  Send us an e-mail at and we'll post an update with your ideas next week.  To get you started, that's a photo of the stained glass from the interior of Philip Johnson's 1977 Thanksgiving Square in downtown Dallas.

Last week, we mentioned that Robert A.M Stern had unveiled his design for the George W. Bush Presidential Library at SMU.  Fast Company has this look at Presidential library architecture all the way back to Nixon and discusses what the buildings say about the men they memorialize. 

While the only Erro Saarinen architecture we have here in Dallas is the Neiman-Marcus store at NorthPark, that gives us an excuse to post this item about an exhibition in New York on the Modernist architect.

Happy Thanksgiving!  We'll still be posting on Facebook and Twitter over the holiday, so keep in touch...
