Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect Gary Skotnicki

Gary Skotnicki has always had a passion for architecture. After starting his own firm ArchiTexas in 1978, Gary has earned multiple awards for his design and preservation talents over the years. His outstanding array of classic and modern work includes:

  • The Hill County Courthouse
  • Joule Hotel
  • The Sammons Center for the Arts.

Today Gary works independently from ArchiTexas, but embraces the challenge of creating buildings that play a meaningful and influential role within our environment. His wealth of experience and desire to transform buildings into works of art has earned him a special place within the Dallas architectural community.
