A VISION FOR HOUSTON & GALVESTON BAY

The Galveston Bay Park Plan proposes the construction of a new string of islands in Galveston Bay that will double as a storm surge barrier and recreational park space. As the Houston Ship Channel continues to be expanded and dredged, the materials could be used  to create the barriers next to the Houston Ship Channel. 

SSPEED's Galveston Bay Park Plan was featured in AIA's Houston 2020 Visions Exhibition. From dozens of submissions, 26 projects were selected. The GBPP was one of three proposals to be elevated as “Visionary” by a nationally acclaimed jury panel. houston2020visions.org
