The 2009 Summer Program

Houston: The Third Ward

Located on the City’s southeast side, the Third Ward encompasses roughly 21,700 acres and is comprised of a unique pattern of land use, infrastructure, natural systems, and culture. Today the area suffers the effects of economic neglect, poor planning, and development pressures. The challenge of this 4-week project is to look at the Third Ward at a variety of scales and in the process explore how new development can take place within the area, while promoting its unique cultural and historic identity.
