The inaugural David Dillon Symposium will take place April 26 and 27 at the Dallas Museum of Art and the Nasher Sculpture Center and will honor Dillon's prolific career as an architectural critic.

Through a keynote address and a daylong symposium, the changing role and venues for architectural criticism today will be explored. A wide range of respected speakers from Texas and across the country who write about architecture for newspapers, magazines, journals, books, and blogs, will consider the purpose of architectural criticism in a digital world where publishing and access to information have radically changed the traditions of the field. What is the role of the architectural critic today? Who reads criticism? Can good criticism help shape a better, more vibrant city?
