Description

The University of Texas at Arlington's new urban thinktank, the Center for Metropolitan Density (CfMD), is a co-sponsor of an Advanced Design Studio that explores prototype solutions for high density mixed-use environments. This fast-paced session will illustrate the CfMD's goals for defining the cultural, live/work, and societal benefits of increased density; along with selected studio results in revitalizing Urban Districts in both Fort Worth and Dallas, and a vacated shopping center in Garland, Texas. Attendees will explore the feasibility processes taught in the Advanced Studio, which permits designers to dynamically modify building program and features to hit financial targets while generating significant city tax increments to offset infrastructure and community amenities.
