This honor recognizes the excellence that results when architects work with those from outside the profession to improve the spaces where people live and work.&nbsp;
Klyde Warren Park (pictured above) healed a rift in Dallas where a freeway once divided two vital sections of the city, overcoming an obstacle that many residents feared was permanent. Designed by The Office of James Burnett, Klyde Warren Park is located above Spur 366 and caps what was once a high speed concrete canyon. The park was completed in 2012 and resulted in 5 acres of activated green space that has redefined the city and its image.
