Fall 2015

The town of Leander is experiencing unprecedented growth. It is projected that as many as 200,000 residents will be moving to the area within the next 20 years. This phenomena is putting extreme development pressure upon the peripheral landscape at the edge of the county. If future development continues along the standard practices of segregated low-density land-use patterns, this will result in an unsustainable place-less environment that will consume the landscape and its ecological resources. Fortunatley, the town has begun to prepare for a higher density land use that is intended to capitalize upon the transit oriented paradigms made possible by the construction of the red-line commuter rail from the City of Austin. The task for the studio will be to develop a vision for what this form of development will result in, and to project a future identity for the town.
