Resilience and Wellness at the Texas Capitol Complex
As the Master Planner, Master Architect and Master Engineer of the Texas Capitol Complex, we have designed the new buildings to provide high-quality environments, while also minimizing each existing structure’s environmental impact and operations costs by reducing energy and water consumption. The two new buildings under construction now are 1601 and 1801 Congress.
Page Senior Principal Larry Speck notes that the buildings will fit comfortably in the Capitol Complex with similar scale to adjacent buildings and Texas Pink Granite as their primary exterior skin material. “But these new buildings will be lighter and brighter with thinner building profiles that deliver more natural light and better views to inhabitants,” he says.
