The Alamo is contested ground. In 2018, after decades of failed planning efforts, however, a bold vision for the Alamo’s future won public approval and is now in design. The team responsible for the project will share their evidence-based, stakeholder-focused approach that is shaping a common ground where multiple histories find their voices in a new museum. This new master plan was led by an interdisciplinary design team – destination planner, interpretive planner, and landscape architect – working for a hybrid client – the State of Texas with the City of San Antonio and private philanthrop – in coordination with a Citizens Advisory Committee representing a cross-section of stakeholders.
The panelists will discuss the evidence-based design, interdisciplinary approaches, transparent processes, and good, old-fashioned legwork that built common ground (metaphorical and real) foralamo the community to move forward together on the Alamo. Attendees will learn how to create frameworks where multiple histories and beliefs can be interpreted as well as learn how to develop a interdisciplinary approach to create a unified visitor experience.
