As promised here’s a look at the first team’s proposal for a re-envisioned Fair Park. The team members include James Banda (Dallas Office – Healthcare Architecture, Becky Luthman (Chicago Office – Healthcare Interiors), Clayton Holmes (Dallas Office – Commercial/Hospitality), and Bart Mangold (Student, SCAD). What if you could layer activities across the entire park and create an entirely new identity? See what the “Stroll” team says:
Despite resting only one mile from the CBD of Dallas TX, Fair Park has a reputation of being an unsafe, isolated and segregated site. Although considered one of Dallas’ signature parks, Fair Park lacks any significant recreational green space that one usually associates with a Park. The Park fails to fully engage its two primary audiences: local residents looking for regular access to a neighborhood hub, and regional visitors looking for an inviting, innovative destination unique to North Texas.
