Location: Dallas, TX
Dallas Main Street Garden is one of the first public green spaces located in downtown as part of the city's effort to draw residents back to the center. The design, by Thomas Balsley Associates, integrates historical artifacts from the demolition of the old parking garages and shops that used to occupy the site with contemporary materials and programming to create a lively town center. The garden is now the site of special events as well as everyday use throughout the year. As part of the design team at Thomas Balsley Associates I focused on design detailing and site topography as well as construction documentation and administration.
