Re-imagining Waller Creek through Downtown Austin

How do you design a public space that unites nature, culture and community?

Peter Mullan will lead a discussion of the ambitious plan to revitalize 35 acres of public open space in downtown Austin; taking a forgotten riparian landscape and transforming it into a world-class natural amenity and cultural destination for all of Austin.

An architect by training, from 1997 to 2004, Peter was a designer at Polshek Partnership Architects (now Ennead Architects), where he led a series of master planning and design projects for universities and cultural institutions, including the Brooklyn Museum, the Yale University Art Gallery and Arts Area Master Plan, and the University of North Carolina Arts Common.
