Krieger, principal in the architecture firm NBBJ, intends to remedy all that -- and then some -- with a new master plan for the Dallas Arts District, which will replace the 33-year-old Sasaki Plan that provided the initial framework for the 17 blocks between Uptown and downtown. The new plan will make its formal bow Monday afternoon at Dallas City Hall.
The plan, in the works for almost a year, imagines the Arts District as a vibrant, connected neighborhood filled with shops, restaurants, residences and, most of all, people who aren't simply headed to or from the Dallas Museum of Art or the Winspear Opera House or the other venues that make up the district.
"We have these world-class institutions providing a number of free and world-class programs in their institutions," said Lily Cabuta Weiss, the former artistic director at Booker T. Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts who in April was named the Dallas Arts District's executive director.
