Tour of Homes 2014 – Call for Projects

The application for home entries is out! With your help, we can build upon last year’s success.

The AIA Dallas Tour of Homes committee had a very successful year in 2013 with over 2,200 people visiting some of the finest residential works that Dallas has to offer. The committee was able to promote the benefits of the design process through features in The Dallas Morning News, FD Luxe, D Home, Culture Map Dallas, and the Dallas Observer. And all of this started with the help of those that submitted their work for the Tour of Homes.

A peek behind the curtain…the Tour of Homes committee, much like every other committee of AIA Dallas, is a small gathering of individuals. While we all proudly participate within the architectural field, Dallas has a vast and diverse field of residential development. We will inevitably miss a possible gem, which is why we need your applications. You’ll help broaden our scope of works that deserve recognition in Dallas. If there is a type of work that you feel was over-looked in the past tours, let us know. If there is an architect new to Dallas with residential work that may otherwise go unnoticed, let us know. Even if there is a project you feel will never get selected, let us know...we might surprise you.

And today the application for letting us know is out, you can find a link to the project application below. Our goal is to show the variety of residential works that Dallas architecture has to offer: from single-family to multi-family, from small to large, from contemporary to historical restorations and renovations. Your submissions will help us demonstrate the diverse possibilities that can be accomplished when you choose to work with architects. And to add a sense of urgency…the deadline for the applications is April 18th! So please, get those applications in and help us share the great residential works of Dallas for the 2014 AIA Dallas Tour of Homes.

ENTRIES DUE: April 18, 2014 by 5:00PM
