RETROSPECT is an annual exhibition showcasing the local, national, and international works of Dallas architects and architectural firms through three-dimensional displays designed to provide a glimpse of current trends in architecture. Now in its 29th year, RETROSPECT demonstrates how architects lead efforts to make our city a better place to live, work, and play. RETROSPECT 2019 will be on display April 18 through 28 at NorthPark Center! 


Be an exhibitor and show off your firm's design to over 100,000 NorthPark visitors. The exhibition should embrace this year’s theme, “Influence,” and inspire our community to see its surroundings differently and imagine new possibilities for architecture as a solution. 

NEW THIS YEAR: The 2019 exhibition will debut a People’s Choice Award, as well as juried awards including Best Use of Theme, Best Use of Materials, and more!
