Dallas Architecture Forum presents Inaugural Frank Welch Memorial Lecture: Ted Flato
The Dallas Architecture Forum will present the inaugural Frank Welch Memorial Lecture to be presented each season as an ongoing tribute to Architect Frank Welch, FAIA, to honor his lasting legacy as Dean of Texas Modernist Architecture.
Ted Flato, Co-Founder of Lake|Flato Architects of San Antonio, will deliver the inaugural Frank Welch Memorial Lecture. Since founding Lake|Flato with David Lake in 1984, Flato has garnered a reputation for his straight-forward, regional designs that leverage each unique site to connect people to the natural environment. Flato is known for employing sustainable strategies in a wide variety of building types and scales. He seeks to conserve energy and natural resources while creating a healthy built environment. Additionally, Flato developed Lake|Flato Porch House — a system of modules and connecting porch elements that link to the outdoors and simplify the design and construction process in a way that is less wasteful.
