In our Modern Across America issue, we spotlighted five American cities with design scenes worth watching. Dallas's oversized image can sometimes eclipse the city’s architecture landscape, which features the work of many forward-thinking planners and visionaries.

A collaboration between the Oslo- and New York-based firm Snohetta and the Dallas firm Architexas, the College Park pavilion has become an inviting gathering point for residents of the surrounding community, well west of the Dallas city center.
Edward Baum, a professor of architecture at the University of Texas at Arlington, and Diane Cheatham, the president and founder of Urban Edge Developers, collaborated on a series of four modern town houses to help reinvigorate inner-city Dallas.
