The time is almost here for the 4th annual AIA Dallas Tour of Homes. I was the Committee Chair for this event last year and had a great time working with the different architects, homeowners, and the local AIA Chapter office. Despite the terrible economy, we had a record turnout last year and I expect that this year’s tour will be able to successfully build upon that momentum and put on a really well organized home tour with outstanding projects for people to tour.
Hosted by the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA Dallas), the fourth annual Tour of Homes is a self-guided tour that will showcase the finest residential architecture in the Dallas/Fort Worth area designed by Texas Architects. The homes on last years tour showcased the cutting edge of modern residential design and this year’s tour promises to showcase the wealth of talent possessed by our area’s best architects.
The event takes place over the weekend of Saturday, November 6th and Sunday, November 7th between the hours of 10am – 5pm.
There will be a Premiere Party on Thursday, November 4th from 6pm – 8pm.
