Tactical Urbanism: Parking Spot to Pocket Patio

Hosted at dwg.


About this FieldTrip

Join designers from dwg. urban landscape architecture on an exploration of Austin’s pocket patios. Through a careful process with the Downtown Austin Alliance and city officials, dwg. was at the forefront of changing code to allow the transformation of parking spots along Congress Avenue into dynamic seating and dining areas for gathering. The tour will visit the firm’s studio and travel to 800 Congress, where Austin’s newest pocket patio has just been completed and 609 Congress to learn about Austin’s first pocket patio. Attendees will also learn about the next Congress Avenue pocket patio, which is currently in conceptual design stages.
