Fountain Place Featured in The Shape of Texas Podcast

The Shape of Texas, Dallas, Volume 2

Since its completion in 1986, Fountain Place in downtown Dallas has been praised for both the geometrical precision of its 60-story tower clad in green glass and the extraordinary six-acre urban space that unfurls at its base. Originally known as the Allied Bank Tower at Fountain Place and designed by I.M. Pei and Partners with landscape architect Dan Kiley.

Fountain Place received the 2011 Texas Architects 25-Year Award. The annual award recognizes one building completed 25 to 50 years earlier that has stood the test of time by retaining its central form, character, and overall architectural integrity. The award was presented on October 28 in Dallas during the Society’s 72nd Annual Convention.
