Please fill out a short online survey and help us better understand people’s impressions and experiences of the landscape (fountains, plantings and hardscape) designed by the Modernist Landscape Architect Garrett Eckbo for the Tucson Convention Center.
When asked whether or not a portion of the Eckbo landscape should be removed, a TPAC Subcommittee recently recommended:
(1) Developing an Assessment Plan before any modifications were made; and
(2) Adopting a Conservation Plan put forward by the Tucson Historic Preservation Foundation.
In follow up, TPAC is gathering public feedback on the Eckbo designed site. To learn more about the Tucson Convention Center Landscape, click the following links:
