The $185-million Perot Museum of Nature & Science broke ground in November of 2009. Construction is coming along well on the building designed by 2005 Pritzker Prize Laureate Thom Mayne and the California based firm Morphosis.

I should preface this by saying I am not complaining … but I receive a lot of emails from people asking for advice
I was driving to an event last week and I saw the new Santiago Calatrava bridge that we have been waiting on forever! I was very excited to see that it is coming along and thought to myself – Dallas is becoming an awesome destination for Architecture.
