Communities By Design

The AIA Dallas Communities by Design Committee focuses on education and advocacy of the built environment’s long term role in the natural environment.

Continuing in the tradition of the Mobility Summit and Urban Summit, AIA Dallas will explore a variety of housing topics including workforce and affordable housing, the “Missing Middle,” accessory dwelling units, aging in place, solutions for homelessness, and much more. The goal of the Summit is to equip architects with the tools to encourage and promote safe, attractive, accessible, and affordable housing for all.

Why Communities by Design?

There’s a reason you became an architect. It wasn’t just about buildings. It was about people; it was about making communities more livable.

We welcome committee members who are committed to healthy, safe, and sustainable communities.

• Share your vision with like-minded design professionals
• Assist citizens and community leaders to improve their community's quality of life through design
• Access resources and form relationships to build your career
