Do The Roots Grow Horizontal?

I would place money on the guess that you've probably never been to the Dallas Center for Architecture. You might not even know that it's seconds away from Klyde Warren Park, which there are pretty good odds you have visited. But we're betting that during the month of September, the DCFA is a much more pleasant stop along Woodall Rodgers Freeway. For one, there's air conditioning. For two, there's the Luis Vidal exhibition, ENCOUNTERS, which opens Wednesday. This architectural installation presents the work of Luis Vidal + Architects, which has designed numerous major projects including Terminal 2 at London's Heathrow Airport. There they inserted innovations like a vertical garden. See this interactive exhibition at the opening reception at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the DCFA (1909 Woodall Rodgers Fwy) with a $10 donation, or see it free through October 31, during the DCFA's operating hours, 9 a.m. - 6 p.m. Monday – Friday.

Wed., Sept. 10, 6 p.m.; Mondays-Fridays, 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Starts: Sept. 10. Continues through Oct. 31, 2014
