Fort Worth Camera

Sure to become a local landmark, Fort Worth Camera’s new storefront has heads turning on Montgomery Street.

Designed by local firm Ibanez Shaw Architecture, the building’s façade incorporates ultra-modern and brutalist elements that make the building stand out from the city’s tendency toward classical and art deco designs.

Lying between the Arlington Heights neighborhood and the Cultural District, the building offers a perfect segue between the neighborhood’s Georgian architecture and the concrete sea of the Modern Art Museum. One of the structure’s distinct features is the hole pattern in the concrete screen, which represents the seven standard apertures of a camera.
