ROCKITECTURE is an annual fundraiser for the Dallas Center for Architecture. Proceeds support the Center's educational programming and scholarship programs. Each autumn, we gather at an architecturally important venue for an elegant cocktail party and silent auction. The silent auction is uniquely curated with items that appeal to lovers of good design and architecture, including artworks from architects in our great city and beyond. 

The evening is for members of the community who love and appreciate the important role that good architecture and design play in our daily lives and support the DCFA's mission of encouraging the conversation of why architecture matters to all of us each and every day.  



On September 21, hundreds of partygoers joined us at the restored mid-century icon Statler for a memorable evening. With delicious hors d’oeuvres and cocktails, guests enjoyed a photo booth with our own version of Llinda Llee Llama and fortunetelling by our Tarot card reader as they bid on more than 150 silent auction items ranging from art and furniture to accessories and one-of-a-kind experiences. All in all, the event raised $95,500 in support of DCFA educational programming, including walking tours and events, youth programs, and scholarships and traveling fellowships.
