Event Details

On Thursday, October 3, the Architecture and Design Foundation will once again present our signature fundraiser benefiting our programming at AD EX, the Architecture and Design Exchange. We will gather at the City of Dallas landmarked Old Dallas High School thanks to our host Perkins + Will. The evening will be for members of the community who love and appreciate the important role played by good architecture and design in our daily lives.

This year will be a special one—in celebrating our party venue and its long history, we will honor two Honorary Co-Chairs who have done much to save it: Veletta Forsythe Lill and Jack Matthews. As council member, Veletta led the charge to have the previously neglected building earn landmark status…over the objection of an absentee landlord. Jack’s experience and reputation as a developer who recognizes the importance of our city’s architectural legacies are illustrated in his effort to renovate and revitalize the building, giving it new life as a mixed-use project.

We’ll enjoy cocktails, bites, and our don’t-miss silent auction curated just for lovers of great art, architecture, and design. Tickets are now on sale at Sponsorship and Host Committee opportunities are also still available. E-mail us at
