Dallas Modern Architecture, Post-1950
The architectural schools led by Harwell Hamilton Harris at the University of Texas taught Modernism. International modernists were recruited to design residences. The result was the most robust proliferation of contemporary architecture in the country.
Modern architecture continued in the 1960s, 1970s, 1980s, 1990s and into the twenty-first century. Dallas architects Downing Thomas, Bill Booziotis, Mark Domiteaux, Lionel Morrison and others contributed to modern residential architecture simultaneously with internationally known architects designing downtown skyscrapers. Interest in modern architecture grows. While the city simultaneously longs for a past, it is encumbered by centuries of tradition, prompting new modern homes.
