Ray was asked by many international museums to allow them to house his collection, but chose to keep it in Dallas, and provide a venue in the center of the city. By placing the facility where he did, Ray Nasher began the realization of the Arts District in Dallas, which has since been enhanced by the construction of the Winspear Opera House and the Wiley Theater.Built: 2003 Design Architect : Renzo Piano Design Architect : Renzo Piano Building Workshop style: Modern Architecture location:
