The Architecture and Design Foundation fosters access to architecture and design for all. The Foundation seeks to be a catalyst for increasing public awareness about how design impacts our lives through the public programs, exhibitions, and tours hosted at the Architecture and Design Exchange (AD EX) located in downtown Dallas and beyond. AD EX’s K-12 activities inspire, encourage, and educate students while highlighting the importance of creative problem solving. Additionally, the Foundation awards over $45,000 in annual scholarships and fellowships, making college and careers accessible and supporting the next generation of architects and designers.
