The City and Its Projects: The City and its Projects is the first comprehensive collection of the City’s design, planning and engineering services that document the City of Austin’s vision for the future.
The collection, released in December, is the result of an intensive five-year process that included research, consultation and public feedback.
It provides a broad view of how the City has integrated a broad range of cultural, social and economic assets into its design and architecture.
The collection, which includes architectural renderings, photos, maps, drawings and reports, draws on the work of more than 300 people, including architects, urban planners, consultants and members of the community.
In addition to the City, a number of private firms contributed to the project, including the Austin Design Foundation, the University of Texas and the Texas Center for Urban Research.
“The City has long been committed to building a culturally diverse, sustainable and socially inclusive City.
But our urban landscape is changing rapidly, and with it, the way we live, work and play.
In order to keep pace with that change, the City needs to continue to build on its core values, as well as its work to engage and engage others to help transform Austin into a more diverse, inclusive and sustainable city.
The City’s vision, for example, calls for a “culture-driven city,” which is the transformation of the city’s fabric to make it more socially and economically inclusive.
The urban landscape of Austin is changing.
We’re all changing.
This is a critical time for the City to continue its cultural transformation, as the City looks to embrace the opportunities of the 21st century urban environment.
