" Join us for a rare opportunity to experience one of Dallas’ most elegant architectural icons. Designed by Philip Johnson for Dallas construction magnate Henry C. Beck and his wife Patty, the home was completed in 1964 and features an exterior of arched colonnades, a double grand staircase in the great hall, and a terraced landscape leading to the creek behind the house. A stunning entertaining space, the home has hosted two recent events attended by President Obama. The home remains a private residence. You will have the extraordinary opportunity to see the home and its incredible art, collected by the current owners, as well as the stunning renovations by architects Bodron+Fruit. Mark Lamster, architecture critic for The Dallas Morning News and professor at UTA’s School of Architecture, will present remarks gleaned from his research for his upcoming book on Philip Johnson."
