The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Houston Transformation Conference
World-class projects by leading practitioners will be the focus of The Cultural Landscape Foundation’s Houston Transformation Conference. Featuring three consecutive moderated panel discussions, Leading with Landscape II: The Houston Transformation will examine the landscape legacy of Houston, and will explore the national and international implications of the design work currently underway in the city.
The first two panels will examine completed projects and ongoing projects, respectively, and will assess the influences of culture, history, and ecology in the evolving Houston cityscape. The final panel will provide a comprehensive appraisal of the projects and issues presented and will consider their implications for city-shaping. Key players involved in Memorial Park’s transformation will be among the distinguished individuals chosen to share their thoughts.
The day-long conference will set the stage for What’s Out There Weekend Houston, a series of free, expert-led tours of some 30 sites around the city, including Memorial Park. A number of these tours will be led by conference presenters.
