A Post From China from Eduardo Castaneda, 2014 Mary Kolb Berglund Traveling Fellow
One of the most vital programs that the Dallas Center for Architecture Foundation administers is its scholarship and fellowship program for student and young architects. Each year, $10,000 or more is distributed to students and architects from across the state and country. This includes the traveling fellowship program: three awards granted for senior architecture students or recent graduates to travel and further their research. Here is a report from Eduardo Castaneda who used his funding from the Mary Kolb Berglund Traveling Fellowship to study urbanization in Asia.

Featured Event

Exhibition: FitNation
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.
