The shuttered Seaholm intake buildings on Austin's Lady Bird Lake house rotating site-specific art and performance installations around a deck and ramp connection that joins lake and city.
The LINK is a center point of a broader initiative to put art and events in and around Lady Bird Lake, using the Lake and its infrastructure to blend the City’s nodal art scene and vibrant recreation culture into a singular cultural expression. Kayak to the building’s scattered sculpture gardens, or take an art jog around the lake trails. Swim in the Lake!
Top three finalist proposal for the City of Austin Parks & Recreation Department Seaholm Intake Reuse Ideas Competition.

The Laskey Landscape is a wooden intervention meant to transform a public site from a void to a space. Combining modern joinery techniques with attention to human ergonomics, the piece is designed to promote interaction.
Construction was funded by the Laskey Award, an annual $5,000 grant presented by Studio L in conjunction with the Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts.
