Wayne Ferguson Plaza


Vision

...To create an open space plaza in Old Town that will become a community destination.

Input from Stakeholder Groups

A week long charrette was held May 11-15, 2009 to develop three plaza concepts. Th e charrette was held together with two other related projects; the Mill Street Corridor Plan and the Old Town TOD Plan. Th ese two plans impact the future use of the plaza and therefore needed to be conceptualized together. Th e charrette process included key stakeholder meetings and public outreach. This helped to guide the concepts and program of each design alternative.

The Design: Sky . Rain . Prairie

Inspired by the sculptural manner in which water carves the landscape of the North Texas Tall Grass Prairie, the design takes on a contemporary sweeping gesture using water as a link east to west and unites the plaza with the future Arts Center. A linear water feature runs parallel to a boardwalk, guiding residents and guests throughout a garden filled with swathes of native grasses and wildflowers. The water feature is designed as a cooling amenity and a gathering place surrounding the central stage and lawn terraces. At the eastern end of the plaza, water terminates at an interactive fountain. A dual water fall/projection wall serves as a dramatic backdrop and screen for outdoor movies, concerts and other performances.
