A detailed history, a clear assessment of the current conditions, a concise description of future plans, a call for action....a good article indeed.

I hope the effort to undo the accretions, and set up a land plan that will address needs more sensitivly can be carried out...a good building in a wealthy city deserves that.

This situation sounds like a perfect job for the Conservancy. Perhaps an annual conference could be planned for Dallas to focus on the problem, bringing to the public consciousness the need to respond. Then after the restoration has been completed, some years later, a follow-up conference to celebrate its success. The power has to be shifted away from the Dallas bureaucracy, and the plan to restore the site a matter of public pride.

Just got an email from Barbara Gordon. She has established a contact with Ann Abernathy, the preservation architect working to save KHT. I hope the Conservancy can help save this vital work.

Did not realize that the cylindrical 127 ton concrete fly loft is cantilevered over the stage.
Gutsy.
