Dear Douglas, I was very happy to speak with you this morning. I fear I do not speak or write so eloquently. But I speak from my heart when I write. I was so taken back by your article that I was almost in tears.

I am writing my dissertation on architecture and music and the Stretto House in particular. I came across your site and it was very helpful in my introductory paragraph on architecture around Dallas. It really is good, and I thank you!

Articles Discussing Douglas Newby

I can’t emphasize enough that Dallas is not an old-school, uncrackable, inbred environment. This is the most open city in the country. You have third- and fourth-generation important families, and you also have new wealth, and you have people moving here. They might enjoy going to New York for the museums and culture, and they might have a vacation home in Santa Barbara or Malibu. But nobody that is seeking out Dallas lives in awe of L.A. They are not impressed.

Doug – it’s all coming together.  Takes 10 years to be an overnight success.  Your idea of submitting success stories is taking shape.  The book will be birthed soon.  The road show is heating up.  The social media seeds have been planted.

The germ of all these ideas, and the subtle inspiration, came from you, Doug Newby.  With much appreciation for your support along the way.  Looking forward to what’s….next.

Warm regards,

One of my TED memories is you and Chris (4Chan) talking urban architecture.  You truly have a way with talented young people – I’m not sure how the algorithm knows that, but I’m glad it does!  Lucky Fellows!

See you very soon….

Interviews with Douglas Newby

How A City Can Flourish – What to Avoid and What to Pursue

Harper Belmont Media interviewed Douglas Newby for a documentary they were doing on short-term rentals (STRs).  Here are 20 video clips taken from that interview where I am discussing additional dwelling units (ADUs) and STRs and what happens when density is added to single-family zoned neighborhoods.

The phone is still ringing about our seminar on ‘The Character of Dallas’ and I have heard so many people express their appreciation for your remarks and admiration of your work in the city to build a better Dallas.
