Dallas Architecture Forum and Dallas Contemporary present Hilary Lewis
Hilary Lewis is the Chief Curator and Creative Director of The Glass House, the iconic home of the late architect Philip Johnson. She is an expert on architecture, urban planning and real estate development who has produced books, articles, magazines, websites and film.
Trained in public policy, urban planning and history of architecture, she examines and comments on the challenges confronting the 21st-century city. With eminent architect Philip Johnson, she wrote two books, multiple articles and produced a short film during 12 years of ongoing work.
Lewis recorded extensively Johnson’s memoirs and ideas on architecture, making her today a primary source for information on the late architect. Johnson and Lewis co-authored pieces for magazines and exhibitions, including work for The New York Times Magazine, Details and the Venice Biennale.
Following Johnson’s passing in 2005, Lewis curated a major museum exhibition on the architect and served as the Philip Johnson Scholar at the National Trust for Historic Preservation's Glass House site.
