Big Hopes for Big Arts Center in Dallas
The article quotes a recent review of the performing arts center in the Los Angeles Times:
"What's dated here ... is the district's organizing principle – the idea that grouping together institutions for the arts and recruiting an all-star team of leading architects to design them, remains a viable means of coaxing underdeveloped urban neighborhoods to life."
Planners point to many new developments on the books that could help tie the area together.
"Ideally, the accumulation of such projects will lead to the long-hoped-for "critical mass" – the point when private funds will be attracted to downtown development without public incentives."
