Architecture360 Is Back!
Back for a second year, Architecture360 is a month full of public events celebrating architecture and design in our great city - from exhibitions and celebrations to tours and panel discussions, presented by a wide range of organizations and partners. Organized by AIA Dallas and the Dallas Center for Architecture and beginning April 1, our version of Architecture Month will offer something for everyone - architect and non-architect alike. Read more for details.
Originally presented at the New York Center for Architecture, FitNation highlights strategies that make the built environment more conducive to healthier lifestyles. Locating stairs for visibility, designing inviting streetscapes for pedestrians, or repurposing urban spaces as sources of fresh produce are examples of ways that architecture can provide opportunities to burn calories and promote healthy living while creating quality spaces and engaging environments. The exhibition has been on display since April, but has been updated to include several Dallas projects, including the City of Dallas Parkand Recreation Department’s park pavilion program, the Texas Horse Park Administration Building, and UTD’s Center for BrainHealth. The exhibition will continue through September 4.
