Texas architect Bud Oglesby’s final residential design, completed in 1992, is
this Highland Park residence originally built for Dallas art collectors.
The current owners have updated this spectacular window- walled home to
display their amazing collection of contemporary art.
The house’s exterior plan creates strong interaction to its site and is
fronted by a modernist colonnade. The slate floors, soaring ceilings and open
spaces of the interior are the perfect canvas for both vintage and current
furnishings and cutting-edge art, creating stimulating living spaces

The 30-minute film illustrates the building of the cable-stayed bridge beginning
with the first announcements in 2001 and completing with the opening
celebrations in 2012. More than a decade in the making, the half-hour
special is the work of award-winning, veteran documentary team of Judy
Kelly, producer/writer, and Ginny Martin, photographer/editor.
We will begin the evening with a reception and light refreshments, followed
by the screening at 6:30 p.m. Filmmaker Judy Kelly will join us for the screening

|Lost Dallas Exhibition Now Open
Special Walking Tour on June 23
In celebration of the publication of a new book by historian Mark Doty, the
Dallas Center for Architecture presents the exhibition Lost Dallas. With images
drawn from a wide range of sources, including private collections, the Dallas
Morning News archive and the City of Dallas municipal archive, Lost Dallas
explores those buildings, neighborhoods and places that have been lost
and even forgotten since the city's modest beginnings in the 1840's.
The exhibition looks at the very first buildings in Dallas, including those built for
city and county government, as well as churches, hotels, commercial and retail
buildings, and residences that have fallen to demolition. One section of the show
looks specifically at what has replaced some of these architectural icons. In
trading "this for that," how did we do?
Join us on June 23 for a special walking tour downtown. Author Mark Doty and
DCFA Program Director Greg Brown will lead the group on a two hour stroll exploring
historic Dallas, both lost and saved. The tours will begin at 10:00 a.m. at Main Street
Garden at the corner of Main and St. Paul. Copies of Lost Dallas will be available
for purchase and signing by the author.
$20 per person. To register, click here.
