Retrospect 2018 Exhibitor Registration

January 24, 2018 - February 23, 2018




RETROSPECT is an annual event organized by the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and hosted by NorthPark Center to introduce architecture to the community through three dimensional displays created by Dallas-area architects. The exhibition provides opportunities for public engagement and promotes interaction as a means of communicating each architect’s reflection of design and the built environment. Many imaginative visuals allow a glimpse of current trends in architecture not only in Dallas, but internationally, as many firms display their works from around the world. RETROSPECT is traditionally held in April of each year.
