Flow | Austin USA | Design Workshop

5 flow-design-workshop-austin-waller-creek-Isabelle-Encella

Waller Creek runs through central Austin from Waterloo Park at 15th street, bisecting the UT campus and along the eastern edge of downtown terminating at Lady Bird Lake. In April of 2011, the City of Austin began the construction of a flood control tunnel along the 1.5 mile stretch of Waller Creek. Upon completion, the tunnel will remove 28 acres from the floodplain, protect the creek from erosion, and help clean the water. Visionary leaders saw the opportunity to catalyze on this investment and transform the 1.5 mile section of the creek into a chain of parks and connected trails. The organization leading the charge, the Waller Creek Conservancy, aims to involve the community in the revitalization of the Waller Creek urban area, which will be under construction for the next decade or more.

Brannskjær Park will be built on Oslo’s most exciting and important post-industrial waterfront site, Filipstad, and will be by far the largest publically accessible open space within the Fjord City Plan. LINK Landskap’s sketch plan for this significant new public park will be used by the site’s owner, The Port Authority (Oslo Havn KF), to illustrate their aims and ambitions for the site and as a basis for future design development.

EVENT | Leading with Landscape | May 21-24 | Toronto, Canada

SWL3

The Cultural Landscape Foundation will hold the Second Wave of Modernism III: Leading with Landscape conference & tours on May 21-24 in Toronto, Canada. The conference will tackle numerous issues including those that deal with the city’s identity – what does it mean for a 21st century city to be historic and modern at the same time? – and stewardship – what new models for public/private financing and management are emerging?

Speakers include Claude Cormier, Adriaan Geuze, Janet Rosenburg, Thomas L. Woltz, Elizabeth Silver, Charles B. Birnbaum and many more. Speakers will examine how existing parks and open spaces are adapted to accommodate contemporary and future needs and expectations, and how innovative landscape planning and design techniques developed in Toronto apply to other cities, and vice versa – and the impact of imported ideas on local conditions.

The conference will be held from May 21 at the University of Toronto with a tour to be also held at the Evergreen Brick Works.
