Join Stephanie McDonald and friends to hear about the design competition and learn more about the winning project.

Waller Creek represents the largest urban creek in the nation to undergo the level of transformation the conservancy envisions.  This project will completely transform how disconnected entities and interests relate and interact with each other.  While the impact area at hand is 28 acres, the conservancy is encouraging designers to pay special attention to key links and passages connecting people and the environment to the targeted redevelopment zone.

In soliciting a design for the Waller Creek area, the conservancy seeks a conceptual plan that accomplishes all of the following:

-Creates a healthy ecosystem for the creek and surrounding areas.  This includes the rehabilitation of two city parks as well as a variety of other open spaces.
-Inspires diverse interests — from higher education to live music — to act cohesively.
-Bridges two parts of a city now divided by an imposing interstate highway.
-Creates a riveting destination attracting citizens from throughout Austin and visitors from around the world.

The conservancy believes these ambitious goals can be accomplished through innovative, collaborative and novel urban design.  More here.
