We're modern home voyeurs. Floor-to-ceiling window gazers. Xeriscape fanatics. We trail in Le Corbusier's wake, intrigued by architecture designed to serve its interior. That's why we grow impatient each Fall, waiting for the AIA Dallas Tour of Homes to illuminate the city's most captivating residences.
This is the seventh annual tour organized by Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects, and it runs this Saturday and Sunday, November 2 and 3. It's self-guided so you can cherry-pick your way around the city, exploring the spaces on your terms. Tickets are available here.
We're also doing a ticket giveaway. Two pairs of passes will be doled out tomorrow. Enter it here.
From the tour's ten homes, we've selected three favorites to salivate over in photos. Let's do some visual breaking and entering.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
