Modern Happenings

Happy Architecture Week!
National Architecture Week is sponsored by the American Institute of Architects (AIA) and hopes to highlight notable architecture across the country. Social media is a target of this year's campaign as the AIA encourages tweeters and pinteresters (pinterestazzi?) to use the hashtag #archweek13. There are also events planned all around the country and listed on the AIA website. Ironically you won't find the one event happening here in Oklahoma:

Architectural Tour

The AIA Central Oklahoma Chapter presents their 12th annual architectural tour on April 13, 2013. For a list of tour stops check out the event poster. Tickets are $12 in advance or $15 on the day of the event. We've created a map showing all the tour stops. For more info visit www.aiacoc.org.

And a notable event after Architecture Week is happening in Dallas.

White Rock Home Tour

The eighth annual tour of this Midcentury Dallas neighborhood will be April 20-21, 2013. For details visit www.whiterockhometour.org.

When we visited we expected to snap a few photos of an empty house and speak with a representative from the auction company. To our surprise the door opened, and we were greeted by Mr. Wallace himself! After assuring him we were not architects, he let us look around. Unfortunately we were not prepared to interview the man whose buildings incite such extremely diverse reactions- but that didn't stop me from asking him several questions anyway. 

The home, completed in 1980, was designed and built by Wallace who is now 87. The expansive home is so large that Wallace spends most of his time in a room that was his late w…
