Forth Bagley Discusses Emerging Innovations in Dallas-Fort Worth at Bisnow Event

On June 26, the KPF Principal joined a panel at the Dallas Architecture & Design Summit, highlighting the firm’s role as a trailblazing designer of the region’s developing projects.

The significant growth of the hospitality industry in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, along with an increasing demand for green space in the built environment, has created a unique opportunity for designers to intertwine architecture with the natural world. With discussions about emerging design trends, advancements in technology, and sustainability methods, the event provided vital insights into navigating these evolving spaces.

Forth’s work focuses on urban environments, delving into the intersection between public and private space and delivering city-defining projects across the globe. With his experience in hotel and residential projects, Forth explored the way mixed-use programming and thoughtful design can shape cities. He referenced KPF work in Dallas including Knox Street Office, an office building within a mixed-use development bordering the Katy Trail, and Parkside Uptown, a high-rise tower at the intersection of three vibrant neighborhoods, both of which inform his knowledge of local regulations and market trends.

On the panel “Trailblazing Endeavors: Exploring Projects and Innovations Shaping DFW,” Forth was accompanied by several leading players in the architecture and design industry, including Caroline Todd, owner of Caroline Todd Interiors; David Brown, Principal at Woods Bagot; Emily Strain, Director and Associate Principal at Corgan; and Peyton Booth, Principal at HKS.

The event began at 3 pm at the Dallas Marriott Downtown. Learn more here and read a recap here.
