Renewal of infrastructure wasteland in downtown Dallas
The Trinity River has been the one factor of crucial importance to the evolution of Dallas. We consider this design a precious opportunity to realize the connection between the Trinity River and downtown Dallas both environmentally and spiritually.
The site lies at the front of the downtown area, where the Trinity River used to flow through. But with decades of infrastructure construction, downtown Dallas has been separated from the river mostly by flood-control projects and mass freeway converging. To revitalize the site, we analyze the existing urban area and make extensions of the existing functional area to crush into the site, and create a mixed-use experience including business, education, residence, exhibition, entertainment, and recreation.
