Do you scream for Waller Creek? We sure do.
We couldn’t be more excited to be a community engagement consultant for a stellar team led by Melk! Landscape Architecture and Page Southerland Page that has been chosen as semi-finalists to design the master plan for Austin, Texas’ Waller Creek. Quite frankly the team is comprised of a remarkable group of people who bring unique capacities to the table that aren’t typically part of a public space design team. We can’t really say much more than that right now but I can’t imagine a more qualified and exemplary team to transform one of the most hidden but significant spaces in Austin into a world class public space. Needless to say, we are also truly excited to be a part of the team because of our considerable love-affair with the space. You may recall that way back in 2009, along with a couple of good friends, we launched the Waller Creek Is For Lovers Action And Adventure Society (WCIFL) in an effort to explore different means for meaningfully engaging people in the design of public spaces such as Waller Creek where typical planning and design methods were not working. Needless to say we had a heck of a lot of fun, developed some pretty cool participatory design tools such as our chocolate cake master planning process, helped raise awareness about the Creek, and fell in love with the space.
