ULIDFW partners with AIA Dallas and Dallas Architecture Forum this September to bring you a joint Breakfast Forum! Forums are content focused, information-dense events, with regionally and nationally renowned industry thought-leaders. This month we will additionally offer a following break-out room discussion with Panelists as moderators to all attendees.

Public spaces, from plazas to parks, are the glue that holds are cities and towns together. What happens when they are caught in a crisis, from COVID-19 to social upheaval? How do we design our spaces to be more inclusive, flexible, and safe for when the world begins to reconnect? How do we capture new public spaces? Hear from a panel of design experts leading the way in Dallas, building new spaces (Trinity Park, Southern Gateway Park) and adapting old ones (Fair Park, public streets) for the next decade.
