Doors open -- with refreshments, snacks, and good conversation -- at 6:00pm. The evening's lecture begins at 6:45pm.
This Month's Presentation: “Nightwing and the Water’s Edge: Emerging Ideas for Austin’s South Central Waterfront”
Come get an exclusive sneak peek at upcoming projects that will shape the future of Central Austin, just south of the river — long the geographic soul of our city.
The talk will center around the (currently temporary) Nightwing Plaza, named after Dale Whistler’s bat sculpture located on the median at Congress and Barton Springs, which is titled “Nightwing.” (See you already learned something.) This project, if made permanent, will provide a connective piece in the overall South Central Waterfront design.
The talk will also feature plans and insights in the soon-to-break-ground RiverSouth Building, which will replace the Hooter’s across from the Long Center.
Hosted by Articulture Designs and Scott Harvey of MaxAvenue Realty
Sponsored by Hay Legal Group, Hossley Lighting Associates, and Texas Sun & Shade
What to Expect at Architalks
Inspiration. Insight. Discussion.

Wine and beer will be provided along with some snacks and soft drinks. The series is free, but you must RSVP as space is limited. (And if you RSVP early, but later discover you can't make it, please let us know so we can open up your seat.)
