The Dallas Architecture Forum continues its FREE panel discussions on Tuesday, Feb. 24 at 6:30 p.m. at the Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rogers. Krys Boyd of KERA will moderate a discussion on Community, Culture and Urban Design.
As Americans seek more energy-efficient, environmentally sustainable and physically fit lifestyles, many are approaching densely-populated urban areas with renewed enthusiasm and high expectations. How can landscape architecture and urban design create public spaces that bring a diverse population outside for regular exercise, recreation, and socialization? How should those spaces relate to the built environment that surrounds them? And how can shared space be managed so as to offer both organic human interaction and opportunities for solitary reflection?
Panelists will explore all these questions, and consider the difference between brand-new urban design and that that attempts to repurpose and improve existing public space, which may already have a history that generates strong emotions—either positive or negative—among those who use it.
Panel Season Sponsors: Buchanan Architecture and Hossley Lighting.
