Dallas Architecture Forum, a non-profit organization dedicated to providing public education about architecture, design and the urban environment, is pleased to present “Design Directions, A Dialogue with Design Leaders,” a Panel Discussion on Tuesday, January 27, moderated by Rick del Monte, AIA.
Eight of the ten largest architecture firms in the country are based in Dallas, or have a major regional presence here, so hearing from their design directors on the future direction of design will be both educational as well as producing thought-provoking discussion. This Panel will be of interest both to those in the profession as well as to the general public who want to learn more about these important design developments.”
The Dallas Architecture Forum Panels are offered at no charge to both Forum members and to the general public as a public outreach of the Forum. Join us for a cold beverage and lively dialogue! The venue for this Panel, presented by the Dallas Architecture Forum, is 1909 Woodall Rogers Freeway, Suite 100, Dallas, TX 75201 (Dallas Center for Architecture offices). This free Dallas Architecture Forum Panel will be held at 6:30 pm, with an informal reception beginning at 6:15 pm. No reservations are needed to attend the Panel.
