Your Architectural Weekend Plans

Lots going on in the area for all our fellow architectureaficionados.  A home tour, structuresmade of canned goods and a pumpkin village all await.  Jump for the details…

The Old Oak Cliff Conservation League isn’t going to let hisweek’s demolition of the Oak Cliff Christian Church put a damper on their home tour thisweekend.  The weather promises to beperfect, so before the Rangers game, head on out for this look at historic andcontemporary structures, including one of the giant churches that still anchor TenthStreet—once referred to by Ripley’s Believe It or Not as “Church Street” forthe 23 churches that lined it.

To see some architecture built in the name of a good cause,head on over to NorthPark Center for Canstruction.  Local architecture and design firms, as wellas other groups, design and build sculptures and structures built entirely ofcanned goods.  They’re on displaytomorrow through October 24 and then the food is donated to area food banks.

And architecture of a slightly more perishable nature is ondisplay at the Dallas Arboretum.  TheStorybook Pumpkin Village, claimed by the Arboretum to be the only pumpkinvillage in the world includes four walk-through houses made completely out ofpumpkins. The houses are surrounded by thousands of pumpkins and decorativegourds as well as a pumpkin patch where guests can pick out and purchasepumpkins for their family decorations.
