2018 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes - Call for Entries

Fellow architects! Do not miss an invaluable opportunity to showcase your work, network with potential clients and fellow architects, grow your business, and advance the vital need for architecture in our community. The AIA Dallas Tour of Homes Committee is now accepting entries for the 11th Annual AIA Dallas Tour of Homes to be held October 20-21, 2018. Tour proceeds allow AIA Dallas to provide the variety of programs extended to AIA community throughout the year.

The AIA Dallas Tour of Homes is a unique and unparalleled opportunity for the public and the design community to experience a variety residential and appreciate what goes into the process to create a one-of-a-kind home.  This year’s tour will strive to showcase the variety of residential work available in Dallas, with homes ranging from multi-family developments to single family new construction and renovations.  There is a place in our community for every client, architect and style who appreciates good design.  The tours goals and focus is to stress to the general public the importance of hiring an architect to achieve superb designs.


As an architect who is privileged to have had three projects on the tour in 2012, 2014, and 2017, I can attest to the benefits of having our work showcased to thousands of tour-goers.  Participating in the tour was a great way to put our work in front of potential clients, network, build up our firm identity, and get to know my fellow AIA members. The overwhelmingly positive feedback and opportunity to demonstrate the value of our profession makes this a chance not to be missed.   I highly encourage all our members in the residential sector to consider submitting a project to the AIA Tour – we need your diversity and want to showcase your work! 


The 2017 tour was a great success thanks to our fellow AIA Dallas member architects who submitted their works, our generous sponsors, the hard work of the Tour Committee, volunteers and of course, the support from our local media advocates:  SparkFarm, KERA, D Magazine, Modern Luxury Dallas and Interiors Texas.    


Please note that the deadline for entries is Monday, March 12, 2018. To learn more on how to submit your work for consideration, please visit or contact 214-880-1504 for more details!
