David Dillon, R.I.P.

By Tim Rogers |

A note just went around the newsroom at the Dallas Morning News. They’re working on the obit. Meantime, here’s the memo:

We have some sad news. Longtime architecture critic David Dillon has died suddenly of a massive heart attack at his home in Massachusetts. He was 68. Most recently, David did freelance work for us on some of Dallas’ biggest architectures stories, including Cowboys Stadium and the AT&T Performing Arts Center, in addition to writing books, teaching and consulting. He played a key role in the Tipping Points series. Previously, he was our staff critic and had a huge profile here as well as nationally.
