Enough Arts; More District

Visitors relax in Dallas’ new 10-acre Elaine D. and Charles A. Sammons Park, designed by French landscape architect Michel Desvigne. At right is the new opera house by Foster Partners; its monumental canopy extends into, and provides shade for, the park.

Site Plan: Winspear Opera House (top middle); Wyly Theatre (bottom middle); future site of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill's City Performance Hall (bottom right)

A beaconlike red drum forms the core of the Margot and Bill Winspear Opera House, designed by Foster Partners.

The drum houses a traditional horseshoe-shaped theater with an acrylic-rod chandelier that retracts when performances start.

The Potter Rose Performance Hall.
