Dallas Modern

Design & Architecture, Books, PhotographyJesse WalkerComment

Discovered this vein of Dallas modern architecture from Modernhepcat, an account I follow on Instagram. The book Dallas Modern authored by The Dallas Architecture Forum can be purchased at Visual Profile Books, Inc.

Description: Dallas Modern is a beautifully photographed, handsomely designed and superbly reproduced hardcover book featuring 20 private homes in “Big D” that represent the talents of internationally renowned architects and revered Texas regionalist architects alike. Defying stereotypical attitudes about modern design, the homes reveal private spaces, ranging from intimate, small-scaled dwellings to sprawling, grand opera-sized estates that illuminate the style, comfort and charm often accompanied by spectacular natural settings. What unites them is a profound respect for the families they shelter and a deep commitment to the art of homebuilding.
