Design That Makes A Difference: The Blackshear Schoolyard Project

In 2013, Page Design Architect Diana Su saw a plea for help in Austin's design community from the principal of a local elementary school. She put her name down as a volunteer, thinking it would be a straightforward effort. Today, Diana and a number of her Page colleagues are part of the fabric of Blackshear Elementary School that includes numerous community members. Their collective work has helped Blackshear develop and implement a master plan to the point the school is now furthering its arts mission with an outdoor performance venue. A citywide design charrette in conjunction with AIA Austin DesignVoice is being held this Saturday, October 21.
