Renovation Workshop with Steve Thomas
Known as a serial renovator, Steve Thomas helped catapult This Old House to the top of PBS’s list of most-watched ongoing series of all time. He was honored with a 1997-1998 Daytime Emmy Award, and a total of nine nominations for “Outstanding Service Show Host.” He went on to highlight green renovation across America on Renovation Nation on Discovery’s Planet Green.
Food Tour: Dallas Bites!
Architecture Tour: Architecture & Design Exchange
We will be led by a trained tour guide on a walk and discussion of a variety of architectural icons, including the Adolphus Hotel, the Magnolia Building, the Statler Hilton, and the Wilson Building. Along the way, we will take a look at examples of Beaux Art, Art Deco, Post-Modernist, Renaissance Revival and Victorian designs and how they were adapted specifically for a rapidly growing metropolis.
From 470 feet up, we will experience breathtaking 360-degree panoramic views of the Dallas skyline!
