Guest blogger GAIL SACHSON challenged you to identify this detail of the facade of an architectural delight last week.

And the answer is … THE TRINITY RIVER AUDUBON CENTER, just 8 minutes South of Downtown Dallas. The new building, which seems to fly in the air and whose windows could be the eyes of a bird, was designed by 2006 AIA Gold Medalist Antoine Predock.

It is the first LEED-certified building constructed by the City of Dallas Parks and Recreation Department. The Center and its 120 acres offers four hiking trails, nature clubs, birding classes and family programs, such as “How to Raise chickens in Your Backyard,” which I attended. (You have no idea how many Dallasites are raising chickens!) Ask your child to take you there this weekend! It’s probably where you’ll want to plan his next birthday party!
