    I have attended the annual AIA Dallas Home Tour for the last 4-5 years, since returning to the Dallas area from working abroad. Every year offers exceptional modern residential design and production. Almost every house introduces me to new possibilities I can use in my own home. From the photos, I choose the Vanderbilt house as the home I could probably gain the most from visiting. However I would LOVE to visit the Malone after having watched its construction but unfortunately cannot attend the party.
