Dallas Center For Architecture Plans Lost Dallas Exhibition

My wife and I had an idea for a public art piece for Dallas that we used to kick around during Friday happy hour: a pedestrian trail marked on the sidewalks of Downtown Dallas modeled after Boston’s Freedom Trail that leads visitors to the city’s notable architectural landmarks. The catch, however, is that Dallas’ landmarks — from Little Mexico to the Carousel Club — wouldn’t actually exist anymore.

That idea — Dallas’ lost architectural legacy — is the subject of an upcoming project at the Dallas Center For Architecture. Centered around an exhibition of photographs of lost buildings, neighborhoods, and other places at the Center’s Woodall Rodgers location, Lost Dallas will also include walking tours, lectures, and book signings. It all kicks off on May 21. Here’s the full release.
