We want this Dallas block to become an sustainable icon that can become a role model for the rest of the world in integrating sustainability in the future cities. We want this block to become the translator between the green landscape and the glassy downtown Dallas… We make the southern corner low and the north corner high. In that way we both strenghten the concept of the landscape meshing the traditionel block and we get a large surface towards south/west for unique apartments.
