Cultivating An Understanding of Architecture: 2017 AIA Dallas RETROSPECT

For several years, Page has participated in the annual AIA Dallas RETROSPECT exhibition that demonstrates how regional architects lead efforts to make Dallas a better place to live, work, and play by showcasing works of Dallas architects and architectural firms. It will be on display to the public April 5 - 19 at Northpark Center.

Page has been joined by other firms in creating elaborate three-dimensional displays designed to provide a glimpse of current trends in architecture. Our submission also is intended to show how Page projects make lives better. This year, the exhibition theme is “Cultivate” so the Page team created a landscape mosaic in the form of the firm's logo: Page with a slash following its name.

They used succulent plants, moss, and pebbles along with 3D printed models of some of the firm's projects; the Veterans Administration Hospital in Reno, Nevada; The Center for BrainHealth’s Brain Performance Institute at The University of Texas at Dallas and The Mercantile, which Page’s Dallas office renovated for itself.

Other 3D printed disks represent community organizations and events that Page has supported in the past such as Hearts and Hammers, United Way, Carry the Load and Gingertown. Next to these are images of Page project renderings and events placed on aluminum hooks. 

Kudos to the team for yet another spectacularly creative way to help people understand the design industry! Be sure to click through the gallery of images to see the design and production process. To learn more about RETROSPECT, click here.
