Beginning at Main Street Garden and its perfect view of some of Dallas’ most important buildings, your trained tour guide will lead you on a walk and discussion of a variety of architectural icons, including:

• the Statler
• Wilson Building

Along the way, see examples of Beaux Art, Art Deco, Post-Modernist, Renaissance Revival and Victorian design, and learn how they were adapted specifically for a rapidly growing metropolis. Additionally, hear about some of the institutions, individuals and visionaries who made it all happen. Presented by AD EX, the Architecture and Design Exchange.
