WATCH: Inside The Design: Students Build Artworks Along The Buffalo Bayou

The site-specific projects were intended to foster public engagement and conversation about evolving plans to expand Buffalo Bayou Park.

Students at the University of Houston designed and installed six artistic installations along the Buffalo Bayou’s east sector. 

The project was called Encounter: Meeting Points on Buffalo Bayou.
