Join The Dallas Architecture Forum and UTA CAPPA for an afternoon focused on the planning concepts, design practices and community outreach efforts that are necessary to create inviting, affordable housing to communities which need to be revitalized and renewed rather than ignored and wasted. These issues will be discussed by three experts in the field of collaborative engagement in helping communities in need of affordable, practical and appealing housing.

Attendees will have the privilege of hearing from five highly regarded practitioners in their fields as they share insights and lead inspiring discussion on this intriguing topic. Alex Henderson, of Rural Studio in Newbern, Alabama will share insights from their famed design-build architecture program from Auburn University. Rural Studio is known for its hands-on, live-amongst approach to engaging a community and making life better for its residents. Emilie Taylor Welty of New Orleans, currently works at the Albert and Tina Small Center for Collaborative Design as a Design/Build expert. She will share from her experiences in community outreach creating design solutions through a collaborative model. Omar Hakeem is the Design Director of bcWORKSHOP, a local non-profit community design studio which works to improve the livability and viability of communities. In addition, Bang Dang and Brad McCorkle from the Design + Build program at UTA CAPPA will discuss their new Parallel Construction initiative. Each of these experts will share from their broad base of experience and also dialogue together in a panel discussion moderated by Brad Bell, Director of Architecture at the College of Architecture Planning and Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Arlington.
