Dallas, Texas?! Huh! When thinking about Dallas, Texas, nothing comes to mind that rings the environmentally friendly bell. But San Francisco’s Urban Re:vision has great intention in ‘forwarding Dallas.’ With architectural samples coming from designers in 14 countries, the block’s structure plans to include “on-site food production, renewable energy generation and a host of other green features, the project will be built in place of a parking lot across from City Hall.”
This green block hopes to house anywhere between 500-850 or so residents as well as incorporate “solar thermal, photovoltaic and wind power generation, providing for 100% of the energy need” and a hope for slow food restaurants and organic farming.
Re:Vision Dallas might change the face of architecture and design. Let’s wait and see.
