Kevin SLOAN, ASLA
“Unexpected in Dallas”
Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100

The new AT&T Performing Arts Center, Margaret Hunt Hill bridge by Santiago
Calatrava and Perot Museum of Nature and Science by Thom Mayne,
establishes Dallas as an architectural patron that’s ready for the next question.
If Dallas were to grow an architectural culture that is exportable, what would
it be? Setting aside their own interests and personal ambitions, panelists will
speculate on what Dallas already has that could form the underpinnings of
an offering to architectural culture.

Mohsen Mostafavi
Rose Family Lecture
Thursday, 7 pm
Magnolia Theatre, West Village

Guiding one of the leading design schools through our problematic times
demands experience and knowledge. As the Dean of the Harvard Graduate
School of Design, Mohsen Mostafavi brings both.  He is also the former Dean at
Cornell and Chair at London's Architectural Association, and is a scholar of
urbanism and architecture. His books include Structure as Space, On
Weathering (with D. Leatherbarrow), and most recently Ecological Urbanism.
His research and design projects have been published widely in major
international journals.

Frances COLPITT, Ph.D
“A Conversation with Flavin Judd”
Tuesday, 6:30 pm
Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100

Donald Judd’s unique understanding of art and architecture has left a significant
and enduring set of distinctions between the two disciplines, as well as a formal
vocabulary almost instantly recognized as singularly his. Join us in this dialogue
with his son Flavin Judd, a founding board member of Judd Foundation, as he
discusses his father’s ideas and legacy with Dr. Colpitt, who knew his father
and has written extensively on his work.

Architecture Film Series:
Grand Paris  
6.00 p.m.

Paris was the first truly modern large city. But it has remained largely unchanged
since the 1860s.

Now, French President Nicolas Sarkozy has a vision to turn Paris into a model
super-metropolis for the 21st century. He calls it "Grand Paris" and he is
determined  that it will be the crown jewel of his legacy.

GRAND PARIS offers a compelling and sometimes suspenseful chronicle of the
process, as the architects try to distill months of research and discussion into
workable plans. It takes us inside some of the world's top architectural firms,
as they compete for an opportunity to reshape one of the world's greatest cities.

The screening will begin at 6:30 p.m. preceded by a reception with refreshments
at 6:00 p.m. $10 donation requested at the door.
to RSVP, e-mail
