SPUR Lunchtime Forum: XERO Dallas

"Architects David Baker, Ian Dunn and Amit Price Patel of David Baker + Partners Architects and David Fletcher from Fletcher Studio will present Xero Project, their winning entry in the Re:Vision Dallas competition designed in conjunction with Fletcher Studio. Sponsored by Urban Re:Vision of San Francisco, the competition asked designers to propose a fully sustainable city block. Xero Project reaches beyond the 2.4 acre site located near Dallas’s City Hall to propose a new district that enacts a symbiosis of agriculture and daily life. Their talk will address incorporating high-density sustainable housing into an urban plan built around green space and food production."
