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.  



This year, on Thursday, September 21, the Dallas Center for Architecture (DCFA) will present the seventh edition of its fundraiser ROCKITECTURE 2017, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever. We will gather at the Statler Hilton, the restored mid-century icon again gracing the Dallas skyline with style and flair. Our guests will be an exclusive group of 300 that will gather for music, food, cocktails and a silent auction. The VIP reception for Sponsors and Host Committee will begin at 6:00 p.m. The silent auction and cocktail party will begin at 6:30 p.m. Complimentary valet parking drop-off and pick-up will be at the Statler entrance on Commerce. 

This year, a portion of the event proceeds will benefit our Diversity in Architecture Scholarship.

Sponsorships are available at the $5,000 and $2,500 levels. You can join the Host Committee for $1,000. And individual tickets are available for $125. For sponsorships or Host Committee, please e-mail us at Individual tickets are available here.

Join us on September 21 for a elegant party...with mid-century style!
