Thomas Phifer has been called the “master of meticulous modernism,” whose work ranges from the Corning Museum in New York, the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh, and the San Francisco corporate headquarters for LinkedIn, to Dallas’ Klyde Warren Park Pavilion and Rachofsky House. The New York City-based architect will be in Dallas to speak to the Dallas Architecture Forum.

Phifer is the Dallas Architecture Forum‘s featured lecturer at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the Dallas Museum of Art. Tickets are $20 for general admission, $15 for DMA members, and $5 for students.

That modernism is evident in his use of light “within a deceptively simple yet elegant design,” Forum Executive Director Nate Eudaly says, describing Phifer’s ability to connect people in man-made environments to their natural surroundings. “His widely celebrated and vast experience spans every scale of design and construction from large public institutions to personal residences,” Eudaly says.
