Tuesday, 7:00 pm
Reception and check-in 6:15 pm

The last two decades have seen dramatic developments in the cultural fabric of North Texas. In Dallas, the Arts District saw the addition of the Nasher Sculpture Center, the Wyly Theater, the Winspear Opera House, the City Performance Hall, and the completion of the Booker T. Washington campus. Fort Worth has added the Modern Art Museum and the Piano Pavilion at the Kimbell among its new signature buildings.
Much has happened besides the completion of these signature buildings. Galleries, artist labs, new musical and theatrical organizations have also come into existence or increased their reach across North Texas. Academic centers and non-profits such as The Forum have expanded the cultural reach and raised awareness and dialogue on issues important to all of us. In addition to the Arts District in Dallas and the Cultural District in Fort Worth, there are emerging centers of creative activity across many North Texas cities. Join us for a lively discussion with Rick Brettell and Mark Lamster as we examine some of these major accomplishments over the last twenty years, and discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades with a goal of enhancing the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents.

In 1999, Voices of Change was a finalist for the prestigious Grammy Award for Best Performance by a Small Classical Ensemble.

About Buchanan Architecture
Founded in 1992, Buchanan Architecture is a full-service, multi-disciplinary architectural design firm with consistent local, regional and national recognition for design and restoration excellence. At Buchanan Architecture, we view the practice of architecture as a service profession. We listen closely to our clients, and deliver design solutions specific to each client’s unique needs and goals. We approach each project, large or small, as a distinct design challenge. With every new challenge is an opportunity for us to apply our planning and design expertise. Buchanan Architecture provides a comprehensive analysis of each project to produce a high quality, cost-effective design solution.
Our philosophy centers on the importance of structure as a catalyst from which sculptural forms emerge and combine to create dynamic, ordered spaces. The foundation of our design approach is geometry, although there is not an insistence upon geometric purity in the work. Instead, geometry forms a framework in which more poetic ideas and elements can be explored. The source for geometric discipline may change with each project, but geometry remains the genesis of the compositional and organizational thinking. Conceptual, sculptural, or gestured responses to the geometric framework are very subtle and nuanced.
We embrace simple solutions to complex problems. We see beauty in the subtle gestures of light and form. We emphasize meticulous detailing and thoughtful assemblage in order to merge structural and geometric elements into integrated compositions. Refining a design is as important as conceiving one. As a result, we find strength from simplicity and restraint. Our work exhibits a continuous understanding of and an appreciation for the art of design and the craft of construction, from initial conceptual diagrams to final built forms.

The Dallas Architecture Forum
Presents Lecture by
Award-Winning Architect Marlon Blackwell
Wednesday, 19 April 2017 in the Horchow Auditorium
Dallas Museum of Art
The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to continue its 20th Anniversary 2016-2017 Lecture Season with outstanding architect Marlon Blackwell, FAIA, Founder of Marlon Blackwell Architects, Fayetteville.
Marlon Blackwell is one of the nation’s most respected regional modernist architects. His practice takes place primarily in Arkansas and combines vernacular traditions with rigorous formalism. Throughout his body of work, nature has been a persistent inspiration, and he strives to create spaces that respond to the physical and cultural eccentricities of a place.
Working in the second poorest state in the country, Blackwell’s architecture uses an economy of means for a maximum of meaning, and he makes spectacular buildings with very small budgets. Blackwell’s work is highly honored on a national and international level. Recent honors include the Smithsonian’s Cooper Hewitt National Design Award and being named Best Architectural Design firm in the United States by the American Institute of Architects.
Blackwell’s projects have ranged from a Honey House to the University of Arkansas School of Architecture to a spare orthodox church. He was the architect for the Ruth Lilly Visitors Pavilion at the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the Crystal Bridges Museum Store at the Crystal Bridges Museum of Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. He is the Principal at Marlon Blackwell Architects and Distinguished Professor and Department Head of the Fay Jones School of Architecture at the University of Arkansas.
As mentioned above in the summary paragraph, Blackwell is the recipient of the 2016 Cooper Hewitt National Design Award, the American Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Prize, and his firm was named 2016 Best Architectural Design Firm in the U.S. by Architect Magazine. Other honors, among many, include the Best Civic and Community Building Award from the World Architecture Festival in Barcelona, Spain.
Blackwell will speak on Wednesday, April 19 at 7:00 p.m., with check-in and reception at 6:15 p.m., in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art.
“Marlon Blackwell has a kind of ‘universal’ philosophy of architecture which says it can ‘happen anywhere, at any scale, at any budget, for anyone,’ yet every project is ‘unique and situational’. This approach drives projects that offer the most cost-effective, yet elegant solutions for his clients and garner recognition from his peers with prestigious design awards from the American Institute of Architects, the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and the USA Artists Fellows, among others. We believe he will give a program of great interest and are delighted to present Mr. Blackwell to the Dallas community,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of The Dallas Architecture Forum.
The lecture will occur at 7:00p.m. on April 19, with a complimentary reception beginning at 6:15 pm. Tickets are $20 per lecture for general admission and $5 for students (with ID). Tickets can be purchased at the door before the lecture. No reservations are needed to attend Forum lectures.

Jonathan Segal, FAIA, redefines the role of the traditional architect by exclusively eliminating the client and developing, constructing and designing his own work. Since 1988 he has designed, developed, and constructed over 300 national award-winning and trendsetting single-family and medium- to high-density residential, live/work units and mixed-use housing totaling over 300,000 square feet in downtown San Diego and La Jolla, California.
Jonathan Segal is considered one of downtown San Diego’s most successful and pioneering residential architectural/development companies and has a reputation for providing superior housing at a lower cost than comparable properties. Their focus is exclusively on urban projects, ranging from 80 to 160 dwelling units per acre.
Throughout his career, Jonathan has been as devoted to the interests of Downtown San Diego as he is to the creativity of his architecture. Staunchly opposed to insensitive development, Jonathan is adamant about preserving historic and important architecture while sensitively integrating new development. This passion for architecture and downtown has not gone unnoticed.
He has received over 40 national, state, and local design awards, and several of those underscore that his standout talents have come at an early age: he has won six National American Institute of Architecture Housing Honors (AIA) and four State of California AIA Honor Awards for Urban Housing, more than any San Diego architect; he was named by the San Diego Union Tribune as one of “Four Architects” in the city’s history that have made a difference; in 2003 he was named to the AIA’s College of Fellows, FAIA – the youngest San Diego architect to be named to this prestigious fraternity; Segal was honored as Residential Architect Magazine’s 2004 National Rising Star; and “The Prospect” was selected as one of Dwell Magazines top 100 homes ever published. In January, 2011 Residential Architect Magazine named him as one of the top 50 architects in the nation.
Jonathan’s interests in thoughtful architecture and development extend beyond his own projects. He shares his ideas frequently as an AIA speaker and has lectured at thirty US Universities, at the University of Cataluña in Barcelona, Spain and at numerous AIA chapters preaching “Architect As Developer” nationwide. Most recently, Segal has been included as a founding member of the National AIA Congress of Residential Architecture (CORA), and along with Ted Smith founded the Woodbury Institute of Architecture for the Masters in Architectural Development (MRED). In 2007, Jonathan presented his first “Architect as Developer” seminar to over 700 architects in Los Angeles and in the fall of 2008 he presented to over 600 architects in Washington DC.

Wednesday, 1 March 2017 in the Horchow Auditorium
Dallas Museum of Art
The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to continue its 20th Anniversary 2016-2017 Lecture Season with outstanding architect Amale Andraos, Dean of Columbia’s Graduate School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation and co-founder of WORKac.
WORKac has achieved international acclaim for projects such as the New Holland Island Cultural Center in St. Petersburg, Russia, the Blaffer Museum in Houston, the Children’s Museum of the Arts in Manhattan and the Edible Schoolyard at P.S. 216 in Brooklyn.
Other projects include the winning competition entry for the Conference Center in Libreville, Gabon that will host the next African Union summit for heads of state. Under construction is the Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in Brooklyn which will explore the future of work, art, and technology.
Andraos has taught at Princeton, Penn, the American University in Beirut, and the Harvard GSD. Her publications include 49 Cities; Above the Pavement, the Farm!; and Architecture and Representation: the Arab City.
Andraos serves on the board of the Architectural League of New York. Recent honors include Architectural Record’s “New Generation Leader for Women in Architecture”, and the January 2017 “Game Changers” cover for Metropolis. Andraos has also designed the NYC residence for Dallas native and fashion designer Lela Rose and the corporate offices for Diane von Furstenberg.
Andraos will speak on Wednesday, March 1 at 7:00 p.m., with check-in at 6:15 p.m.,
in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art.
“As Metropolis Magazine said in naming her firm WORKac a Game Changer in the field of architecture, Amale Andraos has reached ‘the highest ranks of academia and (has won) significant commissions while still in her 40’s.’ We believe her work in architectural design, research, experimentation, and teaching, from the United States to Russia, and Africa, which also draws upon her native Beirut to explore the concept of the Arab City, will provide a program of great interest to the Dallas community,” stated Nate Eudaly, Executive Director of the Dallas Architecture Forum.
The lecture will occur at 7:00 p.m. on March 1.
