AIA Dallas Tour of Homes Features Modern Marvels From Local Architects

PV14 1

It seems like every year AIA Dallas puts on its fall home tour, they up the ante of style and substance. This year’s AIA Dallas Tour of Homes, held Saturday and Sunday Nov. 1-2, is no different.

The tour, which is self-guided and open to the public, will feature the outstanding work of AIA Dallas architects. The tour will feature the recently completed shipping container home from Michael Gooden Design, PV14. The home, named for its address on Peavy Road and for the number of shipping containers the home is constructed with, has sweeping views of White Rock Lake and downtown Dallas. The other eight homes, which also include a Howard Meyer renovation, are no slouches, either.

Dallas Architecture News: Not To Late to Rock it Up at Rockitecture 2011

It’s like how many days are left ’till Christmas. Only for me, an avowed House Porn addict, I count the days down to Rockitecture 2011. This is Rockitecture’s SECOND annual swanky auction on Wednesday, October 26, 6:00 to 10:00 p.m. at the cool Filter Building at White Rock Lake — that’s 2810 White Rock Lane. Tickets are a mere $75 and benefit the Dallas Center for Architecture, all those wonderful men and women who create the House Porn we drool over. How can I NOT be a big supporter? There are many cool items to be (silently) auctioned off, from a great Dr. No chair to sculpture to great restaurant certificates to DMS memberships to a five star night at The Palomar… architecture can work miracles, but you may have to contribute some to making those stars, well, explode!   Go here for details… and to buy your tickets! See you Wednesday night at Rockitecture!
