Dallas Architecture Forum will continue its 2015-2016 Panel Discussion Series on February 9, 2016 with “The Social Initiative,” moderated by Bob Harris, a Partner with Lake|Flato Architects in San Antonio. Panels are offered at no charge to both Forum members and to the general public as a publ outreach of the Forum.
The venue for this Dallas Architecture Forum Panel is at The Dallas Center for Architecture, 1909 Woodall Rogers Freeway, Suite 100. It is free and will be held at 6:30 pm, with an informal reception beginning at 6:15 pm. No reservations are needed to attend this panel discussion.
Harris will be joined by panelists who are actively creating socially responsible design. Why do Millennials care more about design that fosters social responsibility and less about ego in architecture and design? In the last five years there has been a groundswell in the interest of Millennials to participate in design that bridges boundaries among disciplines, demographics and neighborhoods. Largely rooted in urbanism and healthy living, this generation will discuss and debate the idea that socially responsible design is an attitude that emphasizes needs and experiences of people over concerns of form or aesthetics. Issues that will be examined include: “Isn’t social responsibility in design part of the triple bottom line foundation of sustainability?” and “Is it possible to have a profitable practice that engages social initiatives?”
