The Dallas Architecture Forum is pleased to announce the third annual Frank Welch Memorial Lecture which is presented each season as a part of The Forum’s Lecture Series, as an ongoing tribute to honor the life and career of Architect Frank Welch, FAIA, the Dean of Texas Modernist Architecture.

Kevin Alter, founder of Alterstudio Architecture in Austin, Texas and the Richardson Centennial Professor of Architecture and Associate Director of the Center for American Architecture and Design at The University of Texas at Austin, will deliver the Frank Welch Memorial Lecture on Wednesday, January 29, 2020 at 7:00 pm in the Horchow Auditorium at the Dallas Museum of Art.

Alterstudio Architecture, LLP of Austin, Texas is a full service architecture and design firm known for its intellect in design, inventiveness, craftsmanship, and details. The work is rooted in deep-seated virtues of architecture – generous space making, shrewd manipulation of daylighting, and meticulous attention to detail. Alterstudio believes that great architecture should deepen our everyday experience at the same time that it elevates our awareness of a larger, changing world.

About the Frank Welch Memorial Lecture

Frank Welch was a long-time friend and member of The Dallas Architecture Forum. The Forum was fortunate to have events at many of the residences that he designed. The highlight of each event was when Frank would give brief remarks about the project to the attendees. He was always gracious, insightful, and humble, and his presence made the event memorable for all who attended.

Frank Welch’s legacy will continue through his work, including The Birthday  project, which inspired the design aesthetic of a new generation of Texas design professionals. The architects that Frank Welch mentored and the lives he touched are lasting tributes to his vision and humanity. 

Frank Welch’s family has designated The Dallas Architecture Forum as one of the non-profit organizations to which memorial donations in his honor can be made. Donations will be used to fund the annual Frank Welch Memorial Lecture.
