From Cow Town to Cutting Edge: Architecture, Landscape, and Culture in Fort Worth

A Study Tour

Friday through Sunday, October 15, 16, and 17 | (Limited Enrollment)


Accompanied by architectural historian Stephen Fox, the Houston Seminar will explore the Fort Worth area’s most notable public and private spaces. We begin with a visit to the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas by architect Renzo Piano. From there we travel to Fort Worth for architectural visits to the three striking art museums designed by Philip Johnson, Louis I. Kahn, and Tadao Ando, and a visit to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens, a New Deal–era landscape by Hare & Hare. We will have access to a treasuretrove of houses designed by outstanding architects of the twentieth century including Paul Rudolph, I.M. Pei, David Adler, and John Staub. The tour will include visits to exceptional private gardens and some of Fort Worth’s most distinctive neighborhoods. For a more complete description of this trip, click here.

Participants will need to sign the Houston Seminar’s standard waiver of liability.
