DALLAS CONVENTION CENTER
The original expansion project, completed in 1973, features a 200,000 square-foot exhibit hall whose space frame design requires only two free-standing columns (overleaf). The second major expansion, bridging two streets, was completed in time to accommodate a major historic event: the 1984 Republic National Convention.The program included the need to provide a main exhibit space totaling 1,000,000 sq. ft. and appropriate meeting rooms, ballrooms, public areas, and support facilities to create a functionally balanced facility.
