“Lost Dallas” Exhibition

Inspired by Lost Dallas — a new book written by City of Dallas Historic Preservation Officer Mark Doty — the Dallas Center for Architecture Dallas hosted an exhibition exploring the buildings, neighborhoods & places that have been lost and forgotten since the city’s modest beginnings in the 1840’s.

As co-curator and exhibition designer, Noah’s challenges involved bringing these stories to life with large-scale photographs and salvaged architectural artifacts. Historic photographs were organized and floated atop six chapter topics. A separate “This for That” section compared photos from the past to modern views from the same location. A unifying color scheme tied the exhibit together while creating visual interest along the gallery wall.

An evening lecture and book signing by Mark Doty accompanied the exhibition’s opening, and a special walking tour on the subject was also conducted. The exhibit is on display from May 21 to June 29, 2012.




“Nature in Motion: The Architecture of Santiago Calatrava” Exhibition

With the March 2012 opening of the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge, Dallas added a landmark designed by internationally-known architect Santiago Calatrava. As part of the festivities surrounding the bridge’s opening, the Dallas Center for Architecture presented an exhibit examining Calatrava’s projects from around the world. As exhibition designer, Noah was responsible for the overall layout and organization stretching along the Center’s main gallery wall. Photographs and plans of 13 projects were grouped into three categories —  nature/human form, transportation and bridges — and organized organically in reference to Calatrava’s designs.

The exhibition was inaugurated by a delegation visiting from Valencia, Spain — Calatrava’s home town — and opening remarks were made by Mayor Pro Tem Alfonso Grau representing the City of Valencia. The exhibit remained on display from March 1 to June 1, 2012 and addition programming was developed around the exhibition.
