Description
This session will tour the project from the designer’s perspective. It will review the boardwalk’s history, and how it was brought into service through public advocacy. It will discuss technical challenges of designing and building over the water, and the urban design/park planning opportunities that shaped the project solution. Special attention will be given to the project as a new civic icon and its impact on central Austin and downtown life.
