Dallas Architecture Forum presents Panel Discussion Series: Bob Harris
Dallas Architecture Forum presents Panel Discussion Series: Bob Harris: The Social Initiative.
Why do Millennials care more about design that fosters social responsibility and less about ego in architecture and design? In the last five years there has been a groundswell in the interest of Millennials to participate in design that bridges boundaries among disciplines, demographics and neighborhoods.
Largely rooted in urbanism and healthy living, this generation will discuss and debate the idea that socially responsible design is an attitude that emphasizes needs and experiences of people over concerns of form or aesthetics. Issues that will be examined include: "Isn't social responsibility in design part of the triple bottom line foundation of sustainability?" and "Is it possible to have a profitable practice that engages social initiatives?"
