It’s Dallas, Not Denver!

Apparently some people in the design community can’t believe that Dallas is leading the way in sustainable design. The internet design site dornob featured the three winning designs from Re:Vision Dallas in an article titled Green in 3D: 16 Vertical Farm & Skyscraper Designs, but they put the project in the wrong city:

If this all still sounds far-fetched and futuristic to you, consider this design competition for downtown Denver which involves structures with all of the above: green roofs, vertical vegetation and layered park-and-farm levels throughout.

We appreciate the notice, but it’s bad enough that we had to sit through the Denver Nuggets eliminating our beloved Dallas Mavericks in the NBA playoffs this year, without Denver getting the credit for our design competition as well!

  1. I have to admit I was quite skeptical at first too. We have roots in the Ark-LA-Tex region but now live in Seattle, and it seems like when visiting Dallas I would always spend more time in traffic than anywhere else. It's great to see this changing, though! I doubt anyone will mistake the location once the project is built. Keep up the great work.
