The Harvard University Graduate School of Design and the Harvard Club of Dallas welcome alumni to attend a tour of the award-winning Centennial Center at the Hockaday School. This afternoon tour will offer a chance to hear the vision and anecdotes behind the creation of a prominent building within our community. Guests will hear from fellow alumni Jon Rollins MArch ’87, Principal-in-Charge on the project, and Lance Braht MArch ’84, Lead Project Designer, in a discussion around the process, vision, and details associated with the creation of this impressive addition to the Hockaday campus.

Designed by GFF Architects, the Centennial Center reflects the culmination of two major building and instructional initiatives at the Hockaday School that have resulted in an interconnected facility that enhances opportunities for interdisciplinary instruction in the arts and sciences. A new Fine Arts complex provides venues for visual and performing arts consisting of an expanded and fully re-fit theater, a new black box theater and rehearsal space, painting and ceramics studios, classrooms, and associated lobby and gallery spaces. An expanded Science Facility provides new laboratory and classroom space for the upper and middle schools while also providing a new green roof and outdoor classroom.


As part of an on-going program highlighting the design work of North Texas alumni, this event is organized by GSD Alumni Council member Paris Rutherford MAUD ’93 and co-sponsored by the Harvard Club of Dallas.
