Some of These Buildings Are More than 20 Years Old

For those immune to its charms, Dallas isn’t seen as a “beautiful city.” It’s got a body of architecture that only a mother could love, if you know what I mean. Still, we have some heavy hitters, like the cattle-empire-financed Wilson Building; the tan-on-brown, castle-like Adolphus Hotel; William Tabler’s Statler Hilton, a name that’s become synonymous with failed preservation efforts; and the most iconic of them all: the Pegasus-lifting Magnolia Building, whose roof you’ve certainly never accessed while on a second date, from that one window located in the emergency stairwell. There’s more, and telling the story of how they came to be is a job best handled by the pros. Hang out with said big brains today at the Dallas Center for Architecture’s bimonthly walking tour, an on-foot learning parade. Additional tours occur on the first and third Saturdays of each month. This installment begins at 10 a.m. at the Dallas Museum of Art’s main entrance (Flora and Harwood), and tickets cost $10 for normal grown-ups. Get ’em at dallascfa.com.
