I came to Dallas with few preconceived ideas. I haven’t been here since 1978. It’s changed a bit. As I said last week, what I did expect was to be inspired by what I see and hear. That’s happened already. My first impressions are about the juxtaposition of materials in the gardens we’ve visited. The attention to materials used in a pure way has blown me away. Industrial with organic, hard with soft, fine with coarse are all part of the mix.
There will be more on the gardens as soon as I have a chance to process everything and organize my thoughts. It’s a whirlwind of input.
