‘Watershed Urbanism’ Exhibit Display Back from European Cultural Center’s 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale

Head over to the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History to view the ‘Watershed Urbanism’ exhibit. This exhibit, featuring the Panther Island/Central City Flood Project as well as cutting-edge work from across the region, has returned from the world-renowned 2021 Venice Architecture Biennale.

The focus on this exhibit is on the Trinity River watershed in North Texas that celebrates innovative design practices involving both real and speculative projects. Urban areas like DFW face increasing pressures from population booms, sprawl, aging infrastructure and a changing climate. As one of the fastest-growing urban areas in the United States and situated along the waterways that make up the Trinity River watershed, the Metroplex is experimenting with bold visions for the future, one of which being the Panther Island/Central City Flood Project.

Following the Biennale, the exhibit spent time at the University of Texas Arlington University Center, currently it will spend its summer at the local Fort Worth Museum of Science and History before moving on to the Lewisville Grand Theater and then the State Fair of Texas. Check it out today to learn more about the Panther Island/Central City Flood Project and see this world-traveling exhibit.
