DCFA Hosts Exhibit on Architecture and Water Conservation
The Dallas Center for Architecture (DCFA) hosts the exhibit “Design By The Gallon: Architecture and Water Conservation,” which examines the environmental and human-generated circumstances that have put us in a dire situation. In 2011, an average of 14.8 inches of water fell across the entire state, making it the driest year in Texas history. In October 2011, 88% of the state was classified as being in “exceptional drought.” Looking at a series of architect-designed solutions, the show provides context and possibilities for changing our drought-stricken future.
Featured projects include the soon-to-be-completed Perot Museum of Nature and Science, landscapes at Sprint Headquarters and the University of Texas at Arlington, as well as smaller-scale residential projects.
The show also tests your water conservation IQ and offers suggestions for how YOU can help address the problem…not just through behavior but by modifying your own home and workplace.
The show will run through September 19 at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rodgers Freeway, Suite 100. The exhibition is free and open to the public from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Several special programs are scheduled in conjunction with the exhibition.
