The Rice Design Alliance Partners design charrette focuses each year on a particular challenge. In 2007, participants were challenged to design a pedestrian bridge uniting the north and south sections of Memorial Park, Houston’s largest urban park. A charrette serves as a design exercise and while entries are judged, the purpose is to create a forum where we can draw on the creativity of all entrants.
Winners of the 2007 Charrette are:
Best in Show: Team 3 (Clark Condon and Associates)
Brian D. Roth
Honorable Mention for Creative Idea: Team 18 (DMJM Rottet)
Honorable Mention for Creative Idea: Team 16
Honorable Mention for Buildability: Team 12 (PGAL)
The event was presented in collaboration with Memorial Park Conservancy and the City of Houston’s Parks and Recreation Department.
