MODERN MILE DALLAS
h
A CELEBRATION OF
MODERN ARCHITECTURE
IN ONE SQUARE MILE
Save the date! Modern Mile Dallas 2017 Home Tour
Saturday, October 7, 2017, 11:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.

Imagine a home tour clustered within one walkable square mile! Some of the
neighborhood’s original low slung Mid-Century Modern (MCM) dwellings were
built in 1954 in conjunction with a nation-wide Parade of Homes. They received
national publicity in Better Homes and Gardens, and in the local newspaper.
More modern style houses were built, continuing into the ’60s and ‘70s. Most of
those period authentic homes are intact today. In recent times, some of the
original homes were renovated and expanded for modern living. Also there
has been a resurgence of architecturally significant contemporary or modern
style structures built, including some under construction.

Bordered by Royal Lane, Midway Rd, Walnut Hill Lane, and Marsh Lane,
this quiet neighborhood is home to Joe’s Creek with its massive trees and
wildlife. Numerous second generation homeowners continue to live in the area.

"C U L T U R A L   D E V E L O P M E N T S   I N   D A L L A S"

CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS IN DALLAS

Richard BRETTELL, Ph.D.
In Conversation with Mark LAMSTER

10 October 2017

Tuesday, 7 pm, with informal reception and check-in beginning at 6:15 pm
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art

Free for Forum Members, $20 General Admission, $15 DMA Members
Tickets Available at Door, No Reservations Needed
1LU AIA Credit Available - Provide AIA Number at Check-In

The last two decades have seen dramatic developments in the cultural fabric of North Texas.
In Dallas, the Arts District saw the addition of the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Wyly Theater,
the Winspear Opera House, the Moody (formerly City) Performance Hall, and the completion
of the Booker T. Washington campus. Fort Worth has added the Modern Art Museum and the
Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell among its new signature buildings.

Much has happened besides the completion of these signature buildings. Galleries, artist labs,
new musical and theatrical organizations have also come into existence or increased their
reach across North Texas. Academic centers such as UT-Dallas, UTA CAPPA  and non-profits
such as The Dallas Architecture Forum have expanded their cultural reach and raised
awareness and dialogue on issues important to all of us. In addition to the Arts District in
Dallas and the Cultural District in Fort Worth, there are emerging centers of creative activity
across many North Texas cities. Join us for a lively discussion with Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster
as we examine some of these major accomplishments over the last twenty years. Dr. Brettell
and Mr. Lamster will also discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades to enhance
the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents.

Rick Brettell is the Vice-Provost and the Margaret McDermott Distinguished Chair of Art and
Aesthetics Studies at UT Dallas, and also is the Founding Director of the Edith O'Donnell Institute
of Art History and the Art Critic for The Dallas Morning News. Mark Lamster is a Harvard Loeb
Fellow, Architecture Critic for The Dallas Morning News and Professor at UT Arlington CAPPA.
Lamster is also the author of several books including a soon to be released volume about
Philip Johnson.

The Dallas Architecture Forum Presents
365 MODERN LIVING COCKTAIL RECEPTION
Modern Living Every Day of the Year
PARK & PEARL HIGH-RISE RESIDENCE
Monday, 30 October 2017, 6 to 8 pm

The Park & Pearl Residence floats among the critically acclaimed architecture of the Dallas
Arts District. It is home to a forward-thinking couple who desired an industrial backdrop for
their modern high rise apartment.

From a full floor shell apartment, the design team carved out interior spaces that celebrate the
client's cutting edge style and smartly unconventional approach to modern American life. The
elegant, oval shaped building perimeter is wrapped with floor to ceiling windows. Both the floor
plan and architectural finishes were conceived to capitalize on the expansive 360 degree views
and simultaneously mitigate the immense amount of Texas sunlight that would pour into the
space. The window mullions were painted black to enhance the industrial feel of the residence. A
midnight dark ceiling system with exposed duct work was installed and 'almost black' terrazzo
floors were poured.

Reception will be from 6 to 8 pm with remarks from some of the design team at
approximately 6:45 pm.

Valet parking provided, business or cocktail attire suggested.

Welch designed houses in the month of October and you do not want to miss this one!
