The IMPACT DALLAS GALA supports the continuation of architectural excellence and celebrates the impact of 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 4 at The National in downtown Dallas. Our goal in developing this event is to elevate awareness of the impact of architecture and design on the community. Design thinking has the power to improve daily life, address the needs of the community, and unlock the economic potential of the city.

The event will honor three award recipients: Larry Good, FAIA is receiving the AIA Dallas Lifetime Achievement Award, Deedie Rose, Hon. AIA is receiving the George Foster Harrell Award, and the AD EX Community Cornerstone Award winner will be announced at the Gala.

The AD EX Community Cornerstone Award will be awarded for the first time to a non-architectural entity in recognition of outstanding contributions that enhance the quality of life by shaping environments and building community. The three finalists for the AD EX Community Cornerstone Aware are CitySquare, Jubilee Park Community Center, and Dallas ISD.
