The IMPACT DALLAS GALA celebrates the impact of architecture and design in our community.
The Dallas Chapter of the American Institute of Architects and the Architecture and Design Foundation are thrilled to announce the Impact Dallas Gala, a black-tie event to be held on Thursday, November 9. Impact Dallas celebrates the role design plays in solving real-world problems, connecting communities, and improving peoples’ lives. Impacting our region is a task that extends beyond architects; it is a collaboration between community leaders, philanthropists, and all stakeholders who are striving to improve our city. Funds raised will continue The Architecture and Design Foundation’s mission to foster access to architecture and design for all.
The event will honor the award recipients for the AIA Dallas Lifetime Achievement Award and the AD EX Community Cornerstone Award.
