Modern Spaces of Fort Worth — a Plaza, a Park, a Garden

Image details

Join us in Fort Worth for a guided tour of three significant public spaces that (originally) combined landscape and water. Each provides its own response to the environment, be it meditative or interactive while providing compelling examples of the success and failures of public spaces in urban settings.

 

The tour will visit:

  • Heritage Plaza, design by Lawrence Halprin in 1976 as part of Fort Worth's Bicentennial Celebration. Shuttered since 2007, participants will have an exclusive and rare opportunity to tour the plaza and to hear from the team managing its restoration.
  • Burnett Park, designed in 1984 by Peter Walker and renovated in 2010 (also by Walker). 
  • The 1974 Water Gardens designed by Philip Johnson and once featured in the cult film Logan's Run.


Tickets are free for Docomomo members (join here if you're not a member) and $10 for the general public.
