“Cross-Cultural Art and Architecture of Synagogues”
Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100
The design parameters and embellishment of Jewish sacred spaces follow
millennia of precedent; from the actual dimensions of Solomon's Temple to
liturgical symbolism of Ark, Bimah and Menorah. This panel will look at ancient
worship places in Israel and discuss the relationships with contemporary
architectural practice including projects in the North Central Texas area.
White Rock Home Tour
The area’s only all-modern home tour embarks on its seventh year of benefiting Blue
Ribbon School Hexter Elementary showcasing five homes of modern architecture.
Architecture enthusiasts won’t want to miss the meet-and-greets with the architects
at the homes they designed.
Thanks to all who support Hexter through this event. Past years' proceeds helped
to afford a full-time art teacher and purchase a kiln, drying rack, 10 Orff musical
instruments and new playground and auditorium equipment. We appreciate
you and look forward to seeing you again at this year's White Rock Home Tour.
Your Tickets Includes:
Tour five modern homes near White Rock Lake.

"The Bridge to Somewhere"
Caltrava Bridge Panel Discussion April 24 to Examine West Dallas
Plan and Development Opportunities
Some have pejoratively dismissed the newly-opened Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge
as "the bridge to nowhere." But Santiago Calatrava's iconic design DOES lead
somewhere...to long-established West Dallas neighborhoods, as well as areas
already in various developers' bulls-eyes.
In conjunction with the exhibition "Nature and Motion: The Architecture of
Santiago Calatrava," the Dallas Center for Architecture will present a panel
discussion - "The Bridge to Somewhere" - on West Dallas and what will happen
to it post-bridge. Panelists will include David Whitley from Dallas CityDesign
Studio and the West Dallas Plan; John Brown, architect for Phil Romano's
restaurant incubator Trinity Groves; and Nick Troilo, West Dallas "pioneer"
and owner of The Workroom.
The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a reception and refreshments, followed
by the panel discussion at 6:30 p.m. $10 donation requested at the door.
To RSVP, send e-mail to info@DallasCFA.com. Please mention "bridge panel"
in your RSVP.
