Thanksgiving square is a complex in Dallas designed by Philip Johnson and constructed in 1976. The complex consists of a garden area, an underground pedestrian area, and a truck terminal. The name of the square generally refers to the garden area, which promotes the recognition of giving thanks as a basic human commonality. It also houses a non-denominational church that promotes the understanding and coexistence of multiple belief systems. It’s in a spiral shape with stained glass panels lining the inside of the spiral structure and below a museum dedicated to the thanksgiving tradition. It’s a beautiful and creative way to help alleviate traffic in the Dallas area.
