The Dallas Architecture Forum will present world-renowned architect Brian MacKay-Lyons as the speaker for this Season’s seventh annual Frank Welch Memorial Lecture.

MacKay-Lyons founded his firm, now known as MacKay-Lyons Sweetapple Architects Limited, in 1985. The practice works locally and internationally on residential, cultural, and academic projects. Among its many award-winning designs are Queens’s Marque, Smith House, and Mirror Point Cottage in Nova Scotia; Summit Horizon Neighborhood in Utah; and the Canadian Chancery in Australia, currently in process. While the studio’s body of work is known for its cultural responsiveness to local landscapes, climate, and material culture, it also consistently possesses an archetypal quality which touches a global audience.

MacKay-Lyons and the studio are recognized internationally for their design excellence with over 160 design awards, including the prestigious Global Award for Sustainable Architecture; seven AIA National Honor Awards; four Architectural Record House Awards; and the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada Gold Medal, the top award in Canada for lifetime contribution in architecture.
