BARTON SPRINGS POOL Built in 1920’s, the pool is, of course, the centerpiece of the park and its reason to exist. When it was built the pool captured water from Eliza Spring and the Main Spring. But the 1975 bypass tunnel diverted Eliza’s Water. So today, the Main Spring is the only source of water for the pool. The sunken gardens located on this pool are the station of the endangered salamanders that stop and rest on these landmarks that are actually protected. regime because both, the swimmers and the salamanders prefered more steam-like conditions over the pond-like conditiones that characterized the pool back in the days when This was achieved by creating openings in the upstream dam, adding and relocating openings in the downstream dam and reconnecting the water of the Eliza spring to the main body of the pool.

Bridge Project T he objective was to create a connection that serves as interaction between two pieces of land (Point A and B) separated by the Lady Bird Lake (Point C). T his connection needed to interact with the factors surrounding the area such as the landscape, the extracurricular activities that take place at site.

PROGRESS of two bridges that were connected from one end, forcing the pedestrian to walk around the sunken garden.

Gathering areas were integrated into the program as well as landing spots towards the water.

Gathering areas and landing spots were substracted to focus on circulation.

PROGRESS The interactions from point A to B are as well interacting with the actual sunken garden. It was thought as a two paths bridge based on the speed of the pedestrians.

Bath House Project T he Objective of this project

was to create and replace an already existing bath house. T he program, circulation, structure and skin system needed to relate with the Barton Springs Pool. T his project was thought not only as a source of recreation but as mind estimulator space for the visitors letting them step in and observe all the natural resources around this site.

PROGRESS INITIAL MASS

Program was set acomodated into a massive model to acomplish the concept.

Thickness and translucent material is used to provide light to the program.

Concept started to get transparency and opacity to control the amount of light and privacy.

SHIFTING MASS

Now that transparency and program became one as accomplishment for the thesis, these series of models were put in practice for what would the skin system can provide.

Patterns of lines based on retention of mass or people the space can hold. These lines would become patterns of a series of tones that would provide shade and privacy.

The past model will provide shading and privacy but as well will not accomplish the thesis. The skin system was thought more of a transparent element that will have angles that will provide alternative images of the exterior. 22
