Los Angeles Times architecture critic Christopher Hawthorne has some reservations about the Dallas arts district. With the new AT&T Performing Arts Center set to open Monday, he calls the forms of Foster and partners’ Winspear Opera House’s and the Wyly Theatre, by Joshua Prince-Ramus and Rem Koolhaas "sharply contemporary," but adds that they feel "stuck in something of a time warp." He blames the "consistently underachieving" 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.
