Willow Waterhole logo

The design charrette, Awakening Willow Waterhole, took place on Saturday, August 7 at the Rice School of Architecture. The competition focused on maximizing the potential of the Willow Waterhole Greenway Project, a 279-acre greenspace featuring six detention lakes designed to reduce flooding along Brays Bayou. Participants drafted designs to transform the park from a disjointed neighborhood space into a more cohesive, natural community space. The charrette conceptualized measures to make the park a more sophisticated nature preserve, while maintaining characteristics that make the park a welcoming area for various forms of wildlife.
