L.A. Mid-Century Modern in Dallas, TX?

Postby khummer » Mon Aug 18, 2003 7:11 pm

Saw lots of books and magazines on Mid-Century Modern architecture and landscapes with the words L.A. and Southern California in of all places inside Doubleday bookstore at the very 'tony' Dallas area of Highland. You have to love it!

But they are still building here these Faux French McMansions with the really not so showy masonry on the sides of the homes? I guess it doesn't hurt to dream about mid-Century modern through books.

Any great mid-Century modern residents in the Highland area of Dallas, TX? I have to know?!

Dallas Mid-Century Modern Buildings

Postby pgharchfan » Sun Jun 06, 2004 11:19 am

To add a couple more to the list from a recent visit to Dallas:

William Tabler's Dallas Statler Hilton (most recently the Dallas Grand Hotel) downtown.

And a high-rise I discovered at 511 N. Ackard, downtown Dallas. Looks like it is slated for demolition to make way for yuppie condos.

I also recommend NorthPark shopping center and the Meadows building off the 75. Both worth the trip!

Here's a geocities photo page I did on the Meadows Building a few years ago:
