    The Kimbell Art Museum is only a 30-40 min drive from Dallas…I would give up a trip to all of these buildings in order to make it to one of Kahn’s masterpieces. Bonus, Ando’s Modern Art Museum is right next door to the Kimbell.

    I’m really surprised that REX’s and OMA’s Wyly Theater is not on this list. It is a lot more impressive than some of Pei’s work and the Thanksgiving Chapel.

    I am from Dallas and an architecture major (senior). Although the buildings listed above are terrific, I must agree with 123. The Kimbell is literally in EVERY textbook I own. It is a true masterpiece. Hands down the most important building in Texas.

    For less touristy places, The Rachofsky House by Richard Meier is great too, but you’ll only be able to snap a pic from the outside.
