We are excited about the opening of this year’s State Fair of Texas and proud of GFF’s role in the preservation and ongoing revitalization of Fair Park. Centennial Architect George Dahl and his staff created a Beaux Arts campus of “Texanic” Art Deco buildings for the 1936 Texas Centennial Exhibition, and that campus is now a unique cultural resource and one of Dallas’ few National Register Historic Districts.
Mr. Andersen received a Master of Architecture degree from The University of Texas – Arlington in addition to a Bachelor of Science degree in Interior Design from the University of Texas at Austin. During the pursuit of his degrees, he won numerous academic awards and augmented his experience and training with extensive overseas travel, including an extended period where he lived and worked in Europe. He has worked on a variety of projects throughout Texas and the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, as well as projects outside the state and in Canada. His projects have won several awards, and he has proven to be a valuable asset to GFF.
