Summary

Free and open to the Public

Can temporary art lead to longterm solutions? We’ve taken over Austin’s underutilized Brush Square Park with art and design installations for the duration of SXSW Eco. One of Austin’s original public spaces, Brush Square has been bisected by development and lacks any design elements or programming. Come see how Place by Design Finalists have transformed the park from a space to a place. The workshop portion of this event will give attendees the tools to envision ideas and design components to make the park a more useful and creative public space for Austin. Participants will imagine their own location-specific placemaking projects based on context, people and stories of the park.

The PXD Outdoor Lounge is presented by Southwest Airlines. You can see all of the installations and events that are open to the public at sxsweco.com/pxd-outdoor-lounge
