Boardwalk at TxA 2017 Conference

Alfred Godfrey presented Boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake at the TxA 2017 Conference, a session that toured the project from the designer’s perspective. It reviewed the boardwalk’s history and how it was brought into service through public advocacy. It discussed the technical challenges of designing and building over water, and the urban design/park planning opportunities that shaped the project solution.

Special attention was given to the project as a new civic icon and its impact on Central Austin and downtown life.
