At pivotal points in the design process, community engagement provides architects the opportunity to educate the public, build awareness for good design, and gather input. Architects have the opportunity to expand their influence and impact in the process as collaborators, designers, and leaders in their communities. This presentation will focus on four Texas-based case studies where community engagement was completed as part of the design and development process.

Providing four unique perspectives, the panelists - architect, planner, community engagement consultant, and city government staff member - will each present a case study to showcase successes and failures in community engagement and their impact on the design process. The role of the architect, or absence thereof, will be highlighted in each, along with techniques utilized and typical hurdles. The presentation will include resources for further study and leading organizations working the field.
