Friends of Tandy Hills Natural Area are very pleased to announce a partnership with AIA Fort Worth for a Pavilion Design Competition. All entries will be evaluated for design excellence. The proposed budget is $100,000. The call for entries went out to AIA-FW members on October 12.
The project is a first for Fort Worth and will ultimately result in a unique, architect-designed shelter for use by all visitors to the park. The winner will be announced in early 2017.
"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit, and as vital to our lives as water and good bread. A civilization which destroys what little remains of the wild, the spare, the original, is cutting itself off from its origins and betraying the principle of civilization itself."
