Talk About It

There are no comments yet, be the first!

Please join AIA Dallas, Preservation Dallas, and the Dallas Historical Society for a free informational session and panel discussion on the Master Plan.

Learn about the significance of Frank Lloyd Wright’s only freestanding theater, built for the Dallas Theater Center and cutting-edge director Paul Baker, along the Turtle Creek corridor in the heart of Dallas. Discover the exciting possible future for a revitalized theater and site from the original master plan consultant team – including theater design, landscape, and architecture professionals. Hear about the comprehensive public process that synthesized the wishes of the Dallas cultural community to improve and enhance the theater and its site, parking, and connections to the Katy Trail.

The evening will include moderator Veletta Lill, architecture critic Mark Lamster, Stan Cowan of Mesa Design Group, Jules Lauve III, ASTC with Theatre Projects Consultants, Jess Galloway, AIA, Ann Abernathy, AIA, and a special inspirational message from W. Kelly Oliver, the supervising architect who worked with both Wright and Baker.

Cost: FREE

Parking: Please use Gate 3 to access Fair Park. Free parking is available in the lot off of Washington Avenue closest to the Hall of State or in front of the Hall of State on Grand Avenue.
