Design Conference Set for Dallas February 22-24

The Society’s Design Committee invites all Texas Society of Architects members to attend the Second Annual Texas Architects Design Conference, "Collections," scheduled to be held at the Dallas Center for Architecture February 22-24. Cochairmen Mark Wellen, AIA, and Michael Malone, AIA, have been busy organizing the 2013 program to be a fitting successor to the 2012 inaugural conference, “Architecture in the Hinterlands,” held in Midland.

The conference will feature as keynote speakers architects Marion Weiss, FAIA, and Michael Manfredi, FAIA, of Weiss Manfredi Architects in New York. As the program expands in the weeks to come, arrangements are expected to be finalized with another prominent architect and architectural historian who will also be speaking.

As at the Midland conference, building tours — including a number of significant private residences — will be part of the activities. Hospitality events will be held in a number of landmark Dallas buildings, and there will be plenty of time for conversation and socializing. Hotel arrangements are being finalized and rooms will be available for booking soon.

Anyone interested better sign up quick. It will certainly be hard to top last year's conference but I bet they do! A great opportunity to be with great colleagues and see some great architecture.

Hi Charlie!

You're right. The 2012 symposium in Midland drew a crowd, and February's event is sure to do the same. We've already added a number of interested individuals to the list. It's limited attendance, so don't miss this exciting opportunity!
