Pop-UP PARKitecture

We are honored to be on the team to create the new home for AIA Dallas and the Dallas Center for Architecture in Republic Center. As the original Architect for the Republic Center, we are excited to contribute to this historic building. During the initial proposal and interview process with lauckgroup and Better Block Foundation, we hosted an event in downtown Dallas to engage and educate the community and to elevate the conversation of architecture.

Our goal was to seek out a better understanding of how the everyday person in downtown views and experiences architecture. With places to gather, free coffee, free food, games and activities, we created an inviting space to meet the community in the heart of downtown Dallas. We wanted to know what architecture means to them, and here is what we learned:

Our multidisciplinary team has already started to dream big, and our team’s approach transcends standard interior architecture and programming needs and will result in a space that serves both the internal and the external needs of AIA Dallas and the DCFA.

Located across the street from the future Pacific Plaza Park, OMNIPLAN's design will allow the DCFA to activate the sidewalks and go beyond the walls of an office with a high-profile, 24-hour space and open public programming. By inviting the community into the world of architecture and design, we will endeavor to elevate public awareness of the important impact of architecture to the health, equity, welfare, and economic development for the quality of life in our community.

As we continue this collaborative design process for the new space, we look forward to seeing this project come to life.
