How can careful planning make it the healthiest and most robust city in America?

Dallas is rapidly approaching the 10 million population mark that will catapult it into mega-city status. How can we plan for the urban densification we know is coming to ensure that our city remains one of the most livable in America? This panel will explore how urban design, sustainability, walkability and smart growth can pave the way in making Dallas one of the most attractive places in the country to live, work and play.

Hear from the panelists, moderated by Mark Lamster, award-winning architectural critic of the Dallas Morning News, a professor in the architecture school at the University of Texas at Arlington, and a 2017 Loeb Fellow at the Harvard Graduate School of Design:
