HARM TO TABLE
Designed by: Matthew Mazzotta
HARM TO TABLE is a table that travels the country to serve food made of plants and natural resources of that local area that will be in major decline or extinct over the next 20-40 years due to the changing climate. The projects focus is to directly translate the research of the world’s top climate scientists into an experience where you can actually eat the results of their work. Now is the perfect time to experience a unique phenomenon of our times by sitting down to a meal in the natural settings from where these ingredients will soon be no more.

Produced by the Waller Creek Conservancy, Creek Show is an annual event featuring nine nights of light-based art installations designed to combine the artistic with the natural. Now entering its sixth year, the event provides an immersive cultural and community experience for Austin families and visitors. By commissioning local artists and architects to occupy and re-interpret these forgotten spaces, Waller Creek has once again become alive with activity.

The Play Pod™ is a pilot initiative for turning dark, urban spaces into places that are safe and vibrant; that welcome and encourage community participation – something all cities strive for. With a simple, portable cube structure, the Play Pod™ is an attractor that opens up to welcome people of all ages. Its flexible, modular design provides a vehicle through which developers, councils, and communities can activate a multitude of spaces for a variety of uses, creating entirely new destinations and opportunities for experiences to unfold.

Pocket Patios challenge the dehumanization of today’s car-dominant environment with people-centric urban streetscapes. This brand of tactical urbanism replaces cookie-cutter uniformity with dynamic green infrastructure, resulting in measurable social, economic and environmental change. This successful people-first take back of Austin’s public right of ways is how pocket patios change the streets, the cities, and thus, the world.
