In the late 1990s, Dallas became known as Texas's Silicon Valley, which people began to call "Silicon Prairie." Signs of an economic turnaround after the recession began to show by 2004. Towers began construction and residential projects began to grow. The Uptown area of Dallas has since grown into one of the most popular real estate markets in the United States.
The downtown Arts District of Dallas has put Dallas on the map as an architectural destination. Dallas has four buildings within one contiguous block that are all designed by Pritzker Architecture Prize winners: the Winspear Opera House by Foster and Partners, the Wyly Theatre by Rem Koolhaas, the Nasher Sculpture Center by Renzo Piano, and the Meyerson Symphony Center by I.M. Pei and Partners.
