Join The Dallas Architecture Forum and The Nasher Sculpture Center for an informative lecture by Thomas Krens, Inaugural Director of the Frank Gehry designed Guggenheim Bilbao, and Director Emeritus of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Mr. Krens will talk about the importance of art and architecture in shaping the life of cities and changing societies. He will overview a series of influential museum projects he has either led or played a major role in developing. These projects include MASS MoCA in Massachusetts and the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao (Frank Gehry, Architect). He will also overview the Saadiyat Island Cultural District in Abu Dhabi, which includes the newly opened Louvre Abu Dhabi (Jean Nouvel, Architect); the Meixi Lake Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art in Changsha, China (Zaha Hadid, Architect) and a suite of five new museums currently under development in Western Massachusetts which will include monumental scale architectural models of some of the most iconic buildings in the world (Designs by Frank Gehry, Architect). Mr. Krens will conclude with an overview of a utopian “Hub for the Arts” in Saudi Arabia, a project just beginning on an island in the Red Sea. Mr. Krens will examine the dialogue between form and content; the importance of architecture relative to specific sites; and the complexities of implementation and cultural sustainability in his lecture. This will be a rare and unique opportunity to hear about some of the most architecturally significant museum projects of the last three decades directly from Mr. Krens, and you are encouraged to attend.

Admission is Free; Advance Reservations are Requested; Register HERE or call 214.242.5100.
