Couple of weeks back, we got our first look at the six Re:Vision Dallas finalists, and among the honorable mentions was the decidedly kick-ass Co-Op Canyon, which didn't make the cut. But today, Inhabitat nonetheless offers us a closer look at one of the projects of which Central Dallas Community Development Corporation's John Greenan is fond. Notes the site, it's the brainchild of Los Angeles-based architectural firm Standard, which imagines building on a single block behind Dallas City Hall "a terraced urban oasis full of vertical gardens and lush spaces that aims to create a holistic, community-centered, sustainable city block" that's "inspired by the cliff-side villages of Anasazi Indians." Or, Logan's Run?
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
