public park design, 2007 to 2009
san antonio, texas
The design of this 311 acre public park demonstrates and enhances the urban ecology of the remnant pastureland which is now surrounded by residential development. The proposed 'cultivated wild' preserves the Heritage Oaks and existing woodlands while restoring a Texas-sized swath of native grasslands. The Master Plan asserts that seventy-five percent of the park will be devoted to the preservation and restoration of native habitat, while the remaining twenty-five percent be comprised of carefully crafted landscape spaces inspired by San Antonio's cultural history.
