Houston, USA. 2015
The renovation of Jones Plaza is presented as a revitalizing element for the city.
Within the urban fabric of the city of Houston, the intention is to create a focal point for its inhabitants, providing a nerve centre for the downtown arts and theatres with a recreational space non-existent until now in the city.
The citizen will once again enjoy the current Plaza through its expansion, eliminating the parking areas, integrating it with the surrounding buildings and removing elements that have fallen into disuse. The restaurant areas open to the centre of the square are integrated into the space, focusing on the development of different artistic expressions.
The new Plaza project seeks to become a new focal point within the city of Houston. Becoming part of the network of public spaces that seek to reclaim the city for the pedestrian.
