CULTURAL DEVELOPMENTS IN DALLAS

Richard BRETTELL, Ph. D in conversation with Mark LAMSTER


10 October 2017
Tuesday, 7:00 pm, Reception and check-in from 6:15 – 6:55 pm
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art

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 Moody (formerly 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 such as UT-Dallas and non-profits such as The Dallas Architecture Forum have expanded their 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. Dr. Brettell and Mr. Lamster will also discuss what needs to occur over the next two decades to enhance the arts and cultural opportunities for all North Texas residents.

She is the Academic Director of Bengal Institute for Architecture, Landscapes and Settlements. She has conducted design studios at BRAC University since 2005. With Kashef Chowdhury, Marina designed the Independence Monument of Bangladesh and Liberation War Museum during her partnership in URBANA from 1995 to 2005. Her project A5, Pavilion Apartment was a finalist of Aga Khan Award for Architecture in 2004. The same year she received the Sirswa Das, Top Ten Women of Bangladesh Award. She received Architect of the Year Award from India for the project NEK 10 in 2002.

Marina Tabassum has lectured and presented her works and ideas of Architecture in various prestigious international architecture forums and events that include Roros Seminar in Norway, National Conference of Royal Australian Institute of Architects in Perth, Architecture Foundation of Australia in Melbourne, Cite de l’Architecture in Paris, Swiss Architecture Museum in Basel, and the Architectural League of New York.

Their works have been published in various international magazines like El Croquis, A&V, Arquitectura Viva, Casabella, Detail, Architekture Aktuell, AIT, Octogon, A+U and many others.

Two significant built projects are the restoration and renovation of the Constable’s House and Saint George’s Parish Church, both in Pamplona. The first project has been published in the latest issue of Casabella magazine and in many other publications, and has won an American Architectural Prize. The Parish Church has received the Honor Award for Religious Architecture (IFRAA), has been exhibited at the AIA Small Project Awards Exhibition in Chicago and has also been broadly published in architectural magazines.

Ted Flato is a native to Corpus Christi, Texas and received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture from Stanford University. Since founding Lake|Flato with David Lake in 1984, Ted has garnered a reputation for crafting straight-forward, regional designs that leverage each unique site to connect people to the natural environment. By employing sustainable strategies in a wide variety of building types and scales, Ted seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating a healthy built environment. His projects are responsive to their climate through implementation of active and passive strategies which work together to promote environmental stewardship of our natural resources. Additionally, Ted developed Lake|Flato Porch House—a system of modules and connecting porch elements that link to the outdoors and simplifies the design and construction process in a way that is less wasteful. Like many of Lake|Flato’s celebrated designs, Porch House is born from the simplicity of vernacular architecture.

Ted has received international acclaim for a generous portfolio of high-performance yet beautiful designs. Lake|Flato has received over 270 international, national and regional architectural awards— including the prestigious AIA Architecture Firm Award. Ten Lake|Flato projects have received the national AIA COTE Top Ten Project Award—more than any other firm in the nation. As an established thought leader on place-based design, Ted lectures across the nation on implementing healthy building strategies, crafting regionally relevant and landscape-driven designs, and fostering community and healthy office culture, among many topics.

Ted’s recent design focus has been on residential, higher education and eco-conservation work, including the AIA National Housing Award-winning Blue Lake Retreat in Marble Falls, TX; the new Knox College Whitcomb Art Building in Galesburg, IL; and the master plan and design for a new immersive Children & Family Garden Education Center for The Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, AZ.

Thursday, 7:00 pm; Reception and check-in from 6:15 – 6:55 pm
Magnolia Theatre, West Village

An emphasis on the craft of building, a restrained palette of materials, and a thoughtful response to site conditions defines San Francisco-based Andrea Cochran Landscape Architecture.  Coupled with a guiding environmental ethic, this design approach yields landscapes that are experientially powerful and ecologically sensitive. Founder and Principal Andrea Cochran, FASLA, graduated from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design and worked on the East Coast and in Europe before moving to California, where she has been practicing landscape architecture for the past thirty years. 

Ms. Cochran’s fifteen-person firm, established in 1998, tackles a wide range of project types and scales, from single family residences to hotels, wineries, affordable housing, schools, institutions, and public parks.  Most recently, the firm has been working to develop the main entry plaza for a new urban community on Treasure Island in the San Francisco Bay. The firm is also currently in the construction phase of the new Helen Diller Civic Center Playgrounds at the heart of the city.  A collaborative process with the Trust for Public Land and the San Francisco Recreation and Parks department, the playgrounds are a unique and artful space occupied by a forest of lighted “pixel poles” and cloud-like play structures.

Known for seamlessly interweaving sustainable landscapes, art, and architecture, the studio’s designs highlight the experiential qualities of the built environment.  This holistic approach is most recently embodied in the design for Windhover Contemplative Center, which simultaneously functions as an art gallery, spiritual sanctuary, and contemplative garden on the Stanford University campus. This year the project won an honor award in general design from the American Society of Landscape Architects.  ACLA was also awarded with the award of excellence in the category of residential design for the Birmingham Residence, and an honor award for the Telegraph Hill Residence.

Ms. Cochran’s work is internationally recognized and has been featured in the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, and a wide range of design publications.  In 2014, Ms. Cochran received the Smithsonian’s Cooper-Hewitt National Design Award in Landscape Architecture and the American Society of Landscape Architects’ Design Medal.  In 2015, she was Mercedes T. Bass Landscape Architect in Residence at the American Academy in Rome.

Maurice Cox is a nationally acclaimed community designer and leader of the public interest design movement. He is widely respected for his ability to incorporate active citizen participation into the urban design and planning process. Maurice has a reputation for developing bold–yet achievable–plans that become tools for civic discourse and empowerment, embraced by diverse sectors of the community. As the Planning and Development Director for the City of Detroit, Maurice is in charge of the long-term vision for a redeveloped Detroit—improving Detroit’s neighborhoods, developing strategies to boost stable areas of the city with new business and residential development, and devising uses for the vast tracts of vacant lots and other city owned properties. Cox was born and educated in New York City. He received his bachelor’s in architecture from the prestigious Cooper Union School of Architecture and was awarded the Loeb Fellowship at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, where he has also served on the faculty. Cox taught for Syracuse University and at the University of Virginia, which led to him serving as city councilmember and then mayor of the City of Charlottesville, Virginia from 1996 – 2004. During Cox’s mayoral term the city was ranked as the “#1 Best Place to Live in the USA & Canada”by Frommer’s Cities Ranked and Rated. Under his leadership, Charlottesville completed several urban design initiatives, including the passage of an award-winning zoning ordinance in support of mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented development; new infill residential neighborhoods and mixed-income, higher-density housing; and the design of a new, two-mile, federally funded parkway entrance into the city.

Previous to his current position, Maurice served as Associate Dean for Community engagement at Tulane University’s School of Architecture and Director of the Tulane City Center, a university-affiliated practice operating at the intersection of design, urban research and civic engagement throughout New Orleans. He has also served as Design Director of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), where he led the NEA’s Your Town Rural Institute, the Governors’ Institute on Community Design, the Mayors’ Institute on City Design, and oversaw grants to the design community across the United States.  His experience merging architecture, politics and design education and his engagement of diverse sections of the community led to his being named one of “20 Masters of Design” in 2004 by Fast Company. In 2013, Cox was named one of the Most Admired Design Educators in America in the annual ranking by Design Intelligence.
