DAF commissioned Wilson to photograph original images that celebrate Dallas/Fort Worth’s most architecturally significant cultural buildings.
With the completion of the Dallas Arts District, the Dallas/Fort Worth area is now the home of 12 major cultural buildings designed by some of the world’s most outstanding architects of the 20th and 21st centuries. Tadao Ando, Edward Larrabee Barnes, Brad Cloepfil, Norman Foster, Philip Johnson, Louis Kahn, Rem Koolhaas, Ricardo Legorreta, Thom Mayne, I. M. Pei, Renzo Piano and Frank Lloyd Wright—this is the roster of distinguished architects that designed these twelve important buildings. Universally recognized and honored, seven of the twelve are Pritzker Prize Winners, and nine of them have also been honored with the Gold Medal of the American Institute of Architects.
The result of the Forum’s commission for Wilson are limited edition prints that celebrate these 12 buildings – photos that will become iconic images for North Texas. The photographic prints are now available for purchase at 20" x 20", 30" x 30" and 48" x 48", framed. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 310-779-3359.
