Bridging the Park

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.
