Re:Vision Dallas Competition Selects Winner for Inner-City Project

Text size: A A

“Forwarding Dallas” was selected as the winning design from Re:Vision Dallas, an international design competition. The challenge, to transform a vacant inner-city block behind city hall into a carbon-neutral community, drew hundreds of entries from top architecture firms and city planners in 14 countries worldwide.

Forwarding Dallas is the product of a collaboration between Portuguese-based architectural firms Atelier Data and Moov, and will run “off the grid,” acting as a working model of sustainability for cities around the globe. Groundbreaking is scheduled for early 2011.

After selecting three winners and three honorable mentions from hundreds of entries, Urban Re:vision and the Central Dallas Community Development Corp. worked with a cadre of pro-bono executives provided by The Real Estate Council Foundation on the proposed designs, including site analysis, creation of trial proformas, engineering and architectural reviews and estimates of construction costs for the three winning designs.
