A Voice for North Texas Architecture

David Dillon shaped the way we view and discuss North Texas architecture and culture. Through the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture, UTA is continuing the conversation about the ways that cities and design impact our daily lives. 

As architecture critic for the Dallas Morning News between 1981 and 2006, David Dillon chronicled and critiqued the incredible change in the city during its period of fastest growth. To further the public discussion about Dallas architecture and to preserve Dillon's work, CAPPA received a generous donation from Sally Dillon of his complete papers - from notebooks and publishing contracts to handwritten manuscripts and recorded interviews. CAPPA has since expanded this nucleus of the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture to include the David Dillon Symposium and has partnered with the Dallas Festival of Ideas, acting as a catalyst to continue to evolve the public dialogue about architecture and urbanism in North Texas. The Center's current publication projects include producing an edited collection of Dillon's articles from the Dallas Morning News.

Making a gift to the Dillon Center places UTA at the forefront of larger, cultural discussions about how architecture shapes our lives and allows us to pursue research projects and programming that connect the university to the professional community and the public. Funds from its endowment help attract internationally renowned architects and critics to North Texas for the Dillon Symposium and will help continue the Center's Oral History of Texas Architecture Project. Please join us as we make Texas history.
