Event Details

Join AD EX at Thanks-Giving Square to experience architecture hands-on and “Build Your City” from the ground up. You’ll be given your own plot of “land” to build on. What kind of building will you design and create? What materials will you use? How does it fit into your neighborhood? As you construct buildings, parks, and bridges, you’ll learn how a city comes together and what makes them great.

This free come and go activity is fun for all ages. Stay for a minute or a while!

This event is presented in partnership with Creating Connections at Thanks-Giving Square:
The Better Block Foundation, in partnership with Common Era and Humancraft, is excited to announce a design competition aimed at addressing the growing epidemic of loneliness by exploring the impact of design on how people connect with others, the universe, and themselves. Titled “Creating Connections,” the competition aims to heal, unite, and inspire sustainability, inclusivity, and human and spiritual connection, and builds from the Jewish imperatives to improve our global community and honor the interconnectedness of all people and the planet.

The installation will be completed and showcased on June 13 from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. in Thanks-Giving Square located at 1627 Pacific Avenue in Dallas. For more information, visit
