WE BUILT THIS CITY!
The Form Follows Fitness 5K presented by Blackson Brick and benefiting The Architecture and Design Exchange, is Dallas’ Best 5K event showcasing downtown’s Iconic Architecture. Run through the region's cultural life, Uptown, The Arts District, West End and through the skyline and glass high rise buildings with award winning architecture. The proceeds benefit the Architecture and Design Exchange, and the race is presented by Blackson Brick Company, Inc. Registration includes a short sleeve, dry fit style shirt (a slick-looking one you'll actually wear), a unique finisher medal, which in 2022 will kick off a new FIVE YEAR SERIES, plus a legendary after party at Klyde Warren Park featuring live music, great food samples, and tasty craft brews from around DFW!
The AD EX, the Architecture and Design Exchange, works to encourage the conversation about why architecture matters in our daily lives. We seek to increase the public's understanding of the power of architecture to enrich our city and our lives through the scholarships, programs, exhibitions and tours that we present. We offer regular walking tours of downtown, exhibitions on the architecture of our region and beyond, film series, discussions, K-12 programs and many other opportunities to get people talking about the power of architecture and design around them. We also support architecture students at the high school and university level with more than $10,000 in scholarships and traveling fellowships annually.
