AT&T Performing Arts Center, Dallas

AT&T Performing Arts Center, Dallas

The AT&T Performing Arts Center is the hallmark of the Arts District of Dallas. It is a multi-purpose facility that houses events like the opera, ballet, and the theater. The location cost over $300 million dollars to build, so as you can imagine, it is quite something to see.

The complex was opened to the public in 2009. Three different architectural firms were involved in the overall design of the building. Foster and Partners of London were involved, as well as the Office for Metropolitan Architecture and REX of New York. The plans to build the structure started in 2000, when $200 million dollars was raised to begin the plan. By 2007, the campaign to raise money had received its 100th donation of a million dollars or more. They were the first to do so in U.S. History.

In October of 2009, the AT&T Corporation entered into an agreement to have the facility carry the corporate name. As part of that agreement, the company agreed to help this facility become one of the most advanced in the U.S., including free Wi-Fi throughout the complex.
