Recent Experiences with Public-Private Partnerships

Alfred Godfrey served as moderator for the TxA 2017 Conference session, Recent Experiences with Public-Private Partnerships in Central Texas.

The session provided an overview of the PPP movement and how it is influencing architecture in the public realm. Recent projects of the Trail Foundation and Austin Parks Foundation were discussed, specifically, the award winning Boardwalk on Lady Bird Lake, the recently-completed Republic Square project and the in-progress conceptual design work of Studio Gang on the currently-abandoned Seaholm Intake building on the shore of Lady Bird Lake.
