Dallas Celebrates Architecture, Issues Ambitious Trinity River Design Challenge

DALLAS, April 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Dallas is recognizing Architecture Month in April with a challenge to architects, design professionals and amateur urbanites around the world to share ideas and devise solutions for one of the city's oldest and most vexing development hurdles, according to guests on the most-recent segment of the KRLD 1080 AM " Pulse of the City" radio show, sponsored by the Dallas law firm Munck Wilson Mandala.

The Connected City Design Challenge seeks new strategies for connecting and unifying Downtown Dallas with the extensive development underway along the Trinity River. The challenge encourages creative solutions for unifying the two areas and tackling logistical issues such as a legacy of major flood, rail and highway infrastructures that are already in place.

Based on the submissions, three design teams will be chosen, and a separate "open stream" of ideas will part of an ongoing dialogue, including a lecture series and symposiums throughout the year. More details are available at

Guests on the " Pulse of the City" broadcast devoted to Architecture Month included Ralph Hawkins, chairman and CEO of HKS Architects; Kirk Teske, president of the Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects; Robert Morris, president and CEO of Corgan Associates; Jan Blackmon, executive director of the Dallas Center for Architecture; Greg Brown, program director for the Dallas Center for Architecture; Mark Doty, historic preservation officer for the city of Dallas; and Brent Brown, head of the Dallas CityDesign Studio.

Mr. Hawkins noted that as the economy improves, large development deals are on the increase in North Texas and globally, which represents exciting opportunities for architecture firms. "The Dallas region represents so much for architects in terms of health care, sports, hospitality, aviation, education, residential," he said. "We have every type of architecture in community, and Downtown Dallas has really emerged as a success story."
