San Jacinto Junction
DFD hosted a two-day charrette to answer the question, “How might we reimagine the seemingly abandoned Hawkins/San Jacinto intersection as a destination in the downtown Dallas area?” On January 30, 2015, 25 architects, designers, urbanists, and creative Dallasites devoted their Friday evening to sharing big visionary ideas of the city. They first discussed larger urban issues in the Dallas Metroplex and then refocused on Hawkins and San Jacinto. The group developed dozens of potential projects like hammock stations, urban markets, and a mountain that covered up I-345.
This collaborative community action of creative people hopes to give Dallas a vision for the future. This project is not intended to be built, but rather encourage people to question current urban conditions and future plans for our city.
