Project: THALWEG fort @ Fortlandia and associated interpretive content + map of caves/creeks/springs across Austin
Role: Designer, detailer, fabricator, researcher/content creator, illustrator. Collaborators:
Kat Townsend and Blue Sky Design Build
Partner: Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center
Approach: Invite people to explore and learn about the landscape through PLAY.
The THALWEG fort created a conceptual connection with the Texas hill country. Designed as a vertical slice of the local landscape and painted to evoke spring water, the fort encouraged active exploration of subterranean aquifers and limestone karst. Endemic cave-dwelling animals were hidden throughout the fort’s interior for more than 82,000 explorers to discover during its 4 month run.
