Dick Clark, architect of numerous Austin projects, dies at age 72

Architect Dick Clark III has died at the age of 72. Clark, who passed away on August 8th, is known for designing numerous places in the Austin area like the South Congress Hotel, Lonesome Dove Restaurant and Zilker Brewing Company just to name a few.

Clark was born in Dallas in 1944 and graduated from Highland Park High School in 1962. He attended the University of Texas at Austin School of Architecture and received his Bachelor of Architecture and Bachelor of Business Administration in 1969. Clark also had a Master of Architecture from Harvard's Graduate School of Design in 1972.

Clark began his career in Dallas before returning to Austin in 1979 to open Dick Clark Architecture (now known as Dick Clark + Associates).

Clark's work led many to refer to him in Austin as the "Godfather of Contemporary Architecture" as it transformed areas across town including the Warehouse District and the South Congress area.

Details for a service have not yet been released. Memorial contributions can be made to:
