Four Texas Teams Chosen as Semifinalists in Waller Creek Design Competition Four Texas firms are among a nationwide total of nine that were chosen Jan. 30 as semifinalists for the Waller Creek Conservancy design competition, from a pool of 31 entries. The competition calls for a redesign of a 1.5-mile stretch of city parkland and urban space along Waller Creek in downtown Austin.

A winning design for the Waller Creek Competition will be elected in October.

Among the firms chosen are Austin’s Miró Rivera Architects, PageSoutherlandPage, and Ten Eyck Landscape Architects, as well as San Antonio’s Lake/Flato Architects. Each team consists of a landscape architecture firm and design architecture firm. The semifinalists will be charged with further developing their teams, adding civil engineers and hydrologists, among others, to address all environmental and urban design issues. Four final teams will be chosen as this magazine goes to press, and each will receive a $100,000 honorarium to create a conceptual design that will be presented to the public and to city officials in September. A winning design will be elected in October. Photos (page 66) istock photo, Waller Creek Conservancy; (page 68) Gulf Coast Green, TAMI
