In honor of David Dillon, the late, great Dallas Morning News architecture critic, the University of Texas at Arlington has launched the David Dillon Center for Texas Architecture, an initiative of the School of Architecture that will encourage faculty and student research. The center's inaugural David Dillon Symposium will feature New Yorker architecture critic Paul Goldberger as its keynote speaker. Over the course of two days, our city's thinkers will examine the nature of architectural criticism today, following Goldberger's keynote address with a number of panels (including a discussion led by FrontRow’s own Ben Lima, among many others).
