For better or worse, the Dallas Pedestrian Network and its system of connecting tunnels has influenced the architecture of downtown Dallas and stirred debate amongst urban planners. Each day, the patchwork network of corridors and retailers bustles with activity just below the busy streets above.
Over today’s lunch hour, join Noah as he leads today’s Architecture360 tour exploring this unique piece of urban infrastructure known as underground Dallas. Bring your lunch out to Belo Garden, where the tour will meet at 12:30 p.m. before venturing below some of downtown’s largest buildings. We’ll discuss the network’s planning and construction stretching back to the 1960s and point out some of the unique features along the way. With a map in hand and a better knowledge of the Dallas Pedestrian Network, you’ll be ready to explore downtown Dallas at every level.
