Our work for Creek Show 2017 involves not only design but seeing the bigger picture.  Our studio in conjunction with the Waller Creek Conservancy and the City of Austin had the privilege of touring the Waller Creek Tunnel Inlet facility now in its final stages of construction.

The tunnel, now in operation, will protect lives from the dangers of flash flooding, remove 28 acres of floodplain, protect 42 structures and roadways along Waller Creek, and help restore and revitalize the creek’s biodiversity through downtown Austin.  Once completed, construction will begin on the redesigned Waterloo Park in the heart of downtown Austin.

As one of the largest public works projects in the country, we are proud to be playing a vital role in raising awareness and helping to contribute to this great undertaking.  Find more information about the Waller Creek Tunnel, Waller Creek Conservancy, and our installation for Creek Show 2017.
