AT&T Discovery District, Dallas

Boldly Creating a Destination for Urban Discovery

Innovating at the intersection of technology, media, and culture, AT&T partnered with Gensler to rethink its headquarters’ role as a magnetic new public space for Downtown Dallas.

Challenge

Beyond reinvigorating a corporate campus and downtown Dallas, AT&T wanted to leverage technology and media to create an entertainment destination, while heightening brand awareness and driving revenue for local businesses.

Purpose

Concepting the headquarters of a global leader required Gensler to think big about how to create belonging, both among AT&T’s diverse talent base and for the Dallas community at large. We wanted a place that would inspire employees with a vision of AT&T’s future with a strong connection to the local vibe.

Experience

Reflecting the iconic nature of the project, an urban entertainment platform was designed to include a 104-foot media wall, immersive lobby, interactive sculpture, building-scale media trellises, an integrated sound system, and in-ground lighting. With unified technology touchpoints across the entire campus, the result is an experience-rich environment that serves as the magnetic center stage of the city.
