Booker T. Washington High School Architect
Friday, 7 pm (doors open at 6:30 pm)
6 June 2008
Horchow Auditorium, Dallas Museum of Art
No admission charge, no reservations necessary
Brad Cloepfil, architect of the recently renovated and expanded Booker T.
Washington High School for the Visual and Performing Arts, will discuss that
project, along with other work by his firm, Allied Works Architecture, at this
special event. The lecture is jointly presented by The Advisory Board of the
Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, the
Dallas Museum of Art, and the Dallas Architecture Forum.
With degrees from the University of Oregon and the Columbia University
Graduate School of Architecture, Cloepfil is one of the leading American
architects in practice today.
Cloepfil’s body of work is informed by the land, by the history of place, and
by his formal training. His work cuts a clear line through much of the rhetoric
surrounding the practice today. His approach to design combines an
intensive focus on the specific character of each project with an
understanding of the profoundly affecting possibilities of building.
As Principal and Lead Designer, Cloepfil maintains a close involvement in
the design and execution of every project at Allied Works. He also continues
to lecture and teach, and has served on international awards panels and
competition juries. For more information on the firm,
